It has long been suggested that one day the elite European sides could break away to form a European Super League, Dave Kitson has concerns about such a thing happening.
“My nightmare scenario will be a breakaway group from the top leagues in Europe. If that happens, it will be a disaster,” Kitson told the Reading Evening Post.
“You have the top four teams, but there just aren’t enough world-class players to go around. And with the wages being asked for, the gap will widen.
“Where does football go next for more competition and more revenue? A breakaway European Super League with top teams in Europe playing each other every week?
“I know there are a lot of people in high-up positions pushing for that but if it happens, it would be a disaster for a lot of us and personally I’d feel for football.”
In many ways it would be a really bad thing for English, and possibly European football, but in others it would stop the domination of certain teams in this country, unless the next tier then took up the mantle currently held by those that might breakaway?
