Leeds United fans have sent a message to Liverpool with a banner ahead of their game tonight. It comes after the Reds announced participation in the European Super League.
Leeds United fans have placed a large banner in the Don Revie stand at Elland Road. It comes as they prepare to face Liverpool in the Premier League.
The match is a strange one, however, as it comes the day after Liverpool were one of 12 clubs announcing themselves as ‘founding members’ of the European Super League.
It was met with incredible backlash from all areas of football, aside from those involved with investment banks and hedge funds. Unsurprisingly, Leeds fans felt the need to send a message to Liverpool tonight.
‘Earn it on the pitch. Football is for the fans’, says the banner.

What RTK has to say
So Liverpool are a founding member. How lucky for them.
Three-time champions of England Leeds were not ‘fortunate’ enough to be one of those members, despite being one of the biggest clubs in the country. If only they had more money.
The message is a perfect one, really. The decision-makers at Liverpool are no longer interested in earning their privilege or their money or even their success, really – they want it given as a default every year.
So this isn’t a message towards Liverpool fans, nor is it towards the players in attendance. It’s to the owners of the club – people who have essentially done nothing to build the club but wish to destroy English football to make more money out of it.
They purchased the Reds in 2012, when they were the most successful club in the history of English football and one of the most successful in the world. Then they consistently got things wrong for years before Jurgen Klopp became available.
The German took the team back to the very top. Now FSG want more money, despite not earning a thing.
So we fully support Leeds United with their message here. It’s perfect.
