Ex-Real Madrid, Barcelona star Figo slams 'callous' Super League

Portuguese great Luis Figo has slammed the Super League breakaway.

Figo, formerly of Barcelona and Real Madrid among other clubs, railed against the European Super League on Monday.

“This so called 'Superleague' is anything but 'Super'," posted Figo to social media.

"This greedy and callous move would spell disaster for our grassroots, for women's football, and the wider football community, only to serve self-interested owners, who stopped caring about their fans long ago, and complete disregard for sporting merit. Tragic."

Figo also played for a third breakaway member Inter Milan before retirement.
