Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “‘Created by the poor, stolen by the rich’: Furious Manchester United fans protest club’s European Super League plans”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Manchester United are among six English signatories for the proposed European breakaway league which has threatened to uproot the existing norms of European football in favor of a cash-happy model, with critics saying it would serve only to enrich Europe's elite and drive a permanent wedge into the spirit of competition which has governed football since its inception.

A vast majority of fans of each of the clubs involved have expressed their opposition to the plans. At Old Trafford, one of the spiritual homes of English football, supporters gathered on Monday afternoon to voice their concerns and present the type of united front which they say is entirely absent from the newly-announced plans.

"Created by the poor, stolen by the rich," read a banner unfurled in front of the famous stadium, while supporters from various other football club also undersigned the message.

Protests are also expected to take place at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday ahead of Chelsea's Premier League fixture with Brighton.
