Ian Holloway believes that the proposed plans for a European Super League undermines the legacy of the late Duke of Edinburgh.
Holloway reacted with "disgust" at the announcement last night, and says that the Premier League sides' decision to join the breakaway league undermines his pride in his nation.
“Talk about sadness, I don’t know about you, but I spent time watching the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral at the weekend and for the first time in a long time I was really proud to be British and this morning that’s just gone away," Holloway told TalkSport Breakfast.
“That man was so selfless in his life and I wanted us to come out of this pandemic caring about other people more than ourselves and the opposite is happening.
“I am totally outraged, absolutely disgusted in how selfish some people can be the game belongs to supporters not them and I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Holloway warmed to his theme, and wondered as to who is driving this new European project.
“Who is actually in charge? That’s the worrying thing for me.
“Action needs to be taken. It’s not good enough to just say ‘you can’t do it’.
“It’s not strong enough, they should be relieved of their positions, stripped of their clubs.
“A fit and proper owner? Is this how people see football going? It doesn’t make sense.
“The biggest worry is, if you’re getting £3billion a year and not getting relegated, you’re going to want to do it.
“But what is football actually about? It’s about believing you can be better and catch the people who are the best. That’s what football is all about.
“Life’s about trying to get somewhere, not about someone telling you that you can’t get there. It’s doesn’t make sense.”
