Jody Morris gave an honourable mention to fans of Chelsea and those from across the board who pioneered against the European Super League from progressing.

Blues supporters came together outside Stamford Bridge last night ahead of the Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.

It was a stand of solidarity to show how they felt towards this elite competition potentially going forward.

Similar protests were seen at the Leeds United versus Liverpool match on Monday, as pressure ramped up on those 12 owners to disband their vanity project immediately.

Thankfully for football’s sake, the clubs decided to pull the plug on this operation.

This might not have been possible had followers of Chelsea and other teams not made their opinions heard.

Morris, who played for the Blues and was an assistant coach to Frank Lampard, praised those protestors on his Twitter.

Those scenes outside of the Bridge cemented the idea that a Super League would simply not sit well with the footballing community.

A tournament based solely on financial gain rather than sporting merit. A contest for the rich and powerful, rather than the humble and plucky.

Chelsea being the first name to remove themselves from this plan was certainly encouraging, but a decision that should never have been made in the first place.
