Legendary former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is against a global super league.

Arguably the greatest manager of all time has weighed in in the great debate.

The possibility of the biggest clubs in world football breaking away to form their own league.

There has been speculation for years that the top sides of Europe doing it.

Now it appears even the world’s leading clubs getting in on the action.

Speaking to the BBC, Ferguson though is dead against the idea.

“I struggle to see why an English team would need to leave.”

“Without question, it is money orientated.”

“A lot of clubs with great history could be lost if their partners in the Premier League upped sticks.”

“I strongly believe this is a realistic appraisal of the value of domestic football.”

One of the instigators for such a move is Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

It is understood he has held talks with FIFA’s Gianni Infantino about their vision.

UEFA, on the other hand, is said to agree with Fergie, and he is not the only one.
