Liverpool have been accused of lying to a fellow ‘big six’ Premier League club, in the latest big development regarding the founding of a European Super League.
In recent days, the footballing world has been rocked by talk of the breakaway league happening in the near future, with 12 clubs currently in the mix.
Sadly for many Reds fans, Liverpool are one of those, with Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham the other unpopular parties from England.
