Jason Cundy has sent a clear message that he’s not happy after Chelsea signed up for the proposed European Super League.

The Blues are one of 12 clubs to have announced they will be founding members of the potential creation of a European Super League, which would run midweek to rival the Champions League. 

Chelsea are joined by Premier League clubs Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham to sign up to the proposed ideas. 

Meanwhile, foreign clubs AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid are the others involved. 

Pundit and ex-Chelsea player Cundy is strong in his belief that he hopes his former club withdraw from the plans, as he’s strongly against the idea. 

“I don’t want this. This is not a level playing field, this is not what I grew up watching, and I do not want my club (Chelsea) to be involved in this,” Cundy told talkSPORT.

The Chronicle View:

As the news story grows, more and more are coming out to voice their frustration towards the notion of a Super League. 

Many can’t get their head around a competition where there are no relegations or promotions, plus there are concerns about the wider financial impact on other clubs that are not in the elite bracket. 

The 14 Premier League clubs who are not involved in the potential breakaway competition have unanimously rejected the plans.

While all the discussion takes place off the pitch, Chelsea need to focus on a Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night against Brighton.
