MARCUS RASHFORD appears opposed to the European Super League after posting an image on social media that read 'football is nothing without fans'.
The England forward who plays for Manchester United – one of the 12 confirmed 'founding members' of the ESL – shared a photo of a quote from legendary Red Devils manager Matt Busby.
The photo attached to the tweet simply read: "Football is nothing without fans – Sir Matt Busby."
It comes after both Leeds striker Patrick Bamford and Liverpool midfielder James Milner criticised the ESL format after their 1-1 draw on Monday night.
And Reds boss Jurgen Klopp also insisted his view of the European Super League has not changed from when he slammed the idea in 2019.
Meanwhile, the Premier League released an official statement on Tuesday rubbishing the plan.
It read: "The Premier League, alongside The FA, met with clubs today to discuss the immediate implications of the Super League proposal.
"The 14 clubs at the meeting unanimously and vigorously rejected the plans for the competition.
"The Premier League is considering all actions available to prevent it from progressing, as well as holding those Shareholders involved to account under its rules.
"The League will continue to work with key stakeholders including fan groups, Government, UEFA, The FA, EFL, PFA and LMA to protect the best interests of the game and call on those clubs involved in the proposed competition to cease their involvement immediately.

"The Premier League would like to thank fans and all stakeholders for the support they have shown this week on this significant issue.
"The reaction proves just how much our open pyramid and football community means to people."
Rashford, 23, has previous for standing up for what he believes in.
Last year, the Man Utd star forced Prime Minister Boris Johnson to make a u-turn on goverment policy and provide £15 a week free school meals vouchers for poor kids in the UK.
