Numerous fans of Manchester City have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relayed a claim made by Oliver Holt regarding the newly-formed European Super League (ESL).
In his post on Twitter, the journalist claimed that he is “hearing the first cracks may be beginning to appear” between the clubs of the highly controversial proposed tournament, with two unnamed English sides thought to be “close to losing their nerve” in pressing forward within the ESL.
This is likely to be down to the fact that the clubs who have signed up to the league are facing an enormous backlash from the footballing world, as well as a whole range of possible sanctions such as expulsion from their domestic leagues and their players being banned from participating at the European Championships and the World Cup.
After Holt’s claim was relayed by City Xtra, many fans of Manchester City flocked to have their say on the matter, with plenty hoping that Pep Guardiola’s side are among the two reportedly considering pulling out of the ESL proposals. Others simply begged City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak to make a U-turn on their commitment to the new league.
Do you think City should pull out of the ESL?
So, what did these Manchester City fans have to say in reaction to Oliver Holt’s European Super League update?
“Please City, please.”
“DO IT KHALDOON.”
“City please, come on.”
“Manchester City are still alive here…”
“City and Chelsea please God, make this happen.”
“I’m on my kneeeeeeeeeeees.”
“Leave Man City. Do the right thing and apologise and leave.”
