from Skysports.com: indicating that a few clubs in absolute financial stress are driving this .... Juventus & Real Madrid ... so was this "tipping point" driven by a few clubs with great $ needs - that they were going to lose some of their best players ... and that drove them to this desperate act. And now Spurs just fired Mourinho ... "may you live in interesting times". " Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol: "I have to say I have not seen a proposal like this in football which has been met by universal condemnation. I think you would find it hard to find anyone who says this is a good idea. "It will be interesting to see if these owners are ready to do TV interviews now. It's also interesting to see what the players and managers say. "We've heard in the past that managers like Jurgen Klopp have said they are against a potential Super League. What is he going to say? What is someone like Jordan Henderson or Marcus Rashford going to say? "Do they really want to play in a closed league? Do they not want to play in the World Cup and for England? "This is all to do with money. There are 56 countries in Europe and only three are taking part in this, England, Italy and Spain. The Spanish clubs taking part have big financial problems. Inter Milan, their Chinese owners have just shut down their Chinese club. AC Milan and Juventus have financial problems. These clubs need the money. "I am not sure the English clubs need it as much. What I have heard is Manchester City and Chelsea, specifically, were not too keen to get involved in this but they felt like they have no option. The owners of City don't need extra finance, Roman Abramovich does not. If they see their rivals going another way they have to be part of it. "Look at Sunday night's statement, whose name was on it? Real Madrid, the driving force behind it. Juventus' Andrea Agnelli and United's Joel Glazer - the driving forces behind this. "In the past clubs have argued about taking bigger slices of the pie. These clubs are now saying we want a new pie and it's going to be our pie and we'll eat it all." "
