Manchester United striker, Edinson Cavani, has hit out at his bosses, following the failed European Super League plans.
He accused them of trying to deprive “more modest teams” a chance to play in the Champions League.
United’s Glazer owners were involved in the plans to create a breakaway Super League, along with fellow Premier League sides Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.
However, they all withdrew within 48 hours of the official announcement.
The fallout from the Super League debacle saw executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward announce he would be leaving Old Trafford at the end of this year.
But Cavani, who signed a new one-year extension, has gone one step further to launch a scathing attack on his employers.
“When the Super League came around I told myself: ‘That can’t be possible – if it happens, what can we expect next?’
“I don’t share its ideas at all. I am not in agreement with it. You mustn’t deprive more modest teams the chance of playing in the Champions League.
“Or stop average clubs from dreaming of competing with the bigger ones, and having a place among the elite. You can’t deny fans of these clubs the chance to have this experience,” Cavani told Dos De Punta.
