Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham captains to meet as Jordan Henderson calls emergency ESL meeting



Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson has called for an emergency meeting to be held amongst the captains of the 20 Premier League clubs to discuss how they will respond to the European Super League proposal.

That is according to a report by the Mail, who insist the Reds midfielder wants to sit down with the 19 other Premier League captains to talk things through in regards to their response to the European Super League announcement.

Reports on Sunday afternoon surfaced about the prospect of this plan coming into fruition, before Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur all confirmed their involvement in the plan later that evening.

The plan, which will see the six Premier League heavyweights join forces with Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus, is to see a new mid-week competition formed, pitting the best up against the very best, with no relegation featuring in the format.

It is their plan to see them break free from the UEFA Champions League and form their own tournament.

But whilst the owners of these clubs are the driving forces of this plan, it is the managers and players that have been left to face the difficult questions.

So far, Chelsea chief Thomas Tuchel, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola have had to be grilled by the media, as has Liverpool midfielder James Milner, who insisted that he did not like the idea.

Now, it has been reported that Henderson will hold a meeting with the other 19 captains to discuss the way forward.

It is not the first time that Henderson has been the man to take stock of a situation and lead by example, leading the Premier League players’ response to the NHS crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic a year ago.
