UEFA president Ceferin addresses Prem Big Six: Gentlemen, you made a huge mistake

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has urged the six English member clubs of the Super League breakaway to rethink their plans.

England's Big Six - Manchester United, Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham - alongside Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan are founding members of the controversial Super League.

But now three of the Premier League's traditional top six are considering pulling out following the immense backlash, which would be just the start for Ceferin.

Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool hold the greatest hopes of derailing the controversial European Super League, with club bosses believed to be "losing their nerve" amid mounting pressure from fans and Government, reports the Daily Mail.

"At this point I would like to address the owners of some English clubs," Ceferin said during his powerful address on Tuesday.

"Gentlemen, you made a huge mistake. Some will say it is greed, others disdain, arrogance, flippancy, complete ignorance of England's football culture. But actually it doesn't matter.

"What matters is there is still time to change your mind, everyone makes mistakes. English fans deserve to have you correct your mistake, they deserve respect."
