Quitting the body that represents every club in UEFA is an assertive and forceful step in the direction of the newly proposed Super League.
The ECA is the only body that UEFA officially recognises, and Spurs’ departure follows in the footsteps of several other founding Super League teams.
A report in the Daily Telegraph claims that “the ECA held an emergency meeting on Sunday evening about the biggest threat football has faced, but the clubs did not attend and have now all formally resigned.”
The news has rocked the footballing world, and the north London outfit’s exit from the ECA has clearly angered and upset a large section of their fanbase.
“what a sad day for football”
“Sad sad day.”
“Where’s my club gone?”
“i feel sickened”
“It’s getting worse, we won’t be in the prem soon, and our players won’t be able to play internationally soon”
“It’s seriously happening…Can’t believe it”
As if the Tottenham fans had not been through enough turmoil over the last 24 hours, Jose Mourinho was relieved of his duties on Monday morning, just days before the club are set to compete in the Carabao Cup final.
