Luis Figo, formerly of Barcelona and Real Madrid among other clubs, railed against the European Super League on Monday.

“This so called « Superleague » is anything but « Super ». This greedy and callous move would spell disaster for our grassroots, for women’s football, and the wider football community,” he tweeted, “only to serve self-interested owners, who stopped caring about their fans long ago, and complete disregard for sporting merit. Tragic.”

It was a curious tweet given that he left Barcelona for Real Madrid, showing complete disregard for the fans then himself. He won the Champions League with Real in 2002.
