The Ex-Man United and Real Madrid star is among one of a myriad of football figures to raise voice against the controversial proposals.

David Beckham has hit out at the European Super League saying “the game we love is in danger”.

The announcement of the European Super League has met with disapproval from governments, football associations, leagues, coaches, players, and fans.

The competition will rival the Champions League and there are fears that should it come to fruition, the domestic leagues will essentially depreciate.

Three of Beckham’s former teams – Manchester United, Real Madrid, and AC Milan – are among the founding members of the Super League.

“I’m someone who loves football. It has been my life for as long as I can remember,” the Inter Miami co-owner wrote in an Instagram post.

“I loved it from when I was a young child as a fan, and I’m still a fan now. As a player and now as an owner I know that our sport is nothing without the fans.

“We need football to be for everyone. We need football to be fair and we need competitions based on merit.

“Unless we protect these values the game we love is in danger…”
