14 Premier League clubs plan Tuesday meeting to discuss Super League proposal

The 14 Premier League clubs excluded from Super League plans are set for a meeting on Tuesday.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham were not invited to the meeting after it was confirmed they were joining the new European competition.

The Premier League released a strong statement condemning the proposal.

"The Premier League condemns any proposal that attacks the principles of open competition and sporting merit which are at the heart of the domestic and European football pyramid," the statement read.

"Fans of any club in England and across Europe can currently dream that their team may climb to the top and play against the best. We believe that the concept of a European Super League would destroy this dream.

"A European Super League will undermine the appeal of the whole game, and have a deeply damaging impact on the immediate and future prospects of the Premier League and its member clubs, and all those in football who rely on our funding and solidarity to prosper."

According to Goal, the remaining Premier League clubs will hold a meeting on Tuesday to discuss what their next steps should be.

There has been suggestions that the competition should take harsh measures against the breakaway clubs, including docking points.
