Huddersfield Town midfielder Duane Holmes has seemingly weighed in on the debate over the European Super League after he posted a message on his Instagram story in response to Gary Neville.
The concept of a European Super League is seemingly becoming more of a reality as the days pass, with it having been announced late on Sunday night that 12 of Europe’s biggest clubs had agreed to form the new competition that has been created in order to provide competition for the UEFA Champions League.
Naturally this development has caused widespread outrage, particularly in England, with six clubs, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United all having joined up as part of the wider group of twelve despite mass opposition amongst their respective fanbases.

Now players at all levels are beginning to weigh in on the debate, with Holmes taking to Instagram last night to vent his frustrations in response to Neville’s comments on the subject on Sky Sports:
It remains to be seen what will happen with regards to the Super League over the next few months, with governing bodies, club staff, players and fans all rallying in opposition against the project as the determination to prevent it from becoming a reality grows.
Holmes won’t be alone in expressing his feelings on the matter and it is the players who are caught in the middle of all of this as it appears that those who play for the six English clubs in question have been kept out of the loop as such.
It seems that these owners took the decision to join this project without first consulting the playing or management staff and that has inevitably left a sour taste in the mouth of many people.
As Neville put it recently, this has become a war on football and it has to be stopped for the good of the game, not only in Europe but across the world.
