The Athletic’s Wolves correspondent, Tim Spiers, has set out Wolves’ stance on the proposed European Super League.
Owners Fosun are apparently ‘steadfast’ in their opposition to the plans to create a new elite European competition with 15 guaranteed qualifiers.
Spiers writes that Fosun ‘respect the traditions’ of English football and were keen to use Tuesday’s meeting of the 14 excluded clubs to ‘voice their disappointment’.
He adds that even if Wolves were invited to join such a competition, they would refuse.
The Super League’s threat to Wolves
Fosun harbour ambitions of establishing the Midlands outfit as a Champions League outfit, and so their vision would be in disarray if the plans were to come to fruition.
Three months ago, Nuno told the press that the establishment of such a competition was his ‘biggest fear’.
Wolves fans sceptical about Fosun’s Super League stance
“They care about the traditions? They’re eroding the identity of the club by filling it with Mendes clients. They would jump at an invite.”
“Highly doubt they would have said that if they were initially offered a place.”
“Haha they’re gonna say that now though ain’t they lmao”
“Tim, even you know they would’ve jumped at the chance if invited. They are an investment vehicle whose primary objective is to generate shareholder value.”
“I bet they’d be in like a shot.”
“Official statement or it means nothing”
“I’ll believe it when they come out with a statement; until then, they’re in support of it as far as I’m concerned.”
