Coronation Street’s Andy Whyment rages at Man Utd and Super League in rare Twitter post

During an appearance on The One Show last night, Football Focus host Dan Walker listed three reasons why fans were so angry about the news.

He also agreed that greed was a factor.

The BBC Breakfast star explained: “I think there are three reasons, the first of those is greed. And for many fans this stinks of it, because the pandemic has taught us, that football is nothing without fans…

“The second point is arrogance. These clubs are claiming to be the finest in Europe now, understandably at the expense of all the others….

“And the third thing is about the spirit of competition. They are trying to create a league where they can’t be relegated… If sport is something you can’t lose then it’s not sport,” he continued.
