PremierLeague-News.Com - Supporters gathered at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this afternoon and plan to protest ahead of the Premier League game with Wolves
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Supporters have gathered outside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in protest to the club's ownership and involvement in highly-controversial European Super League (ESL) breakaway proposals. The future of football as we know it was thrown into doubt last month when six Premier League sides - including Spurs plus London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea - were confirmed among 12 initial signatories for reform plans drawn up by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez. However, amid universal backlash from fans and key figures elsewhere in the game, the ESL was promptly stopped in its tracks. Clubs who issued such a stance on the much-maligned reform have, though, since come under the microscope.

Tottenham fans have also made their feelings known at the club's home this afternoon. A number of banners were displayed by those in attendance, reported to have been in their hundreds, after Spurs released a statement about their ESL involvement, which read: "It's important to underline that we entered the ESL with the expectation that the format, rules and structures would evolve through dialogue with key parties, namely the Premier League, FA, UEFA, FIFA and, crucially, fans.

We should have challenged and reconsidered the annual access system. We wholeheartedly regret that we involved the club and that the legal process itself meant we were unable to consult our fans early on - we apologise unreservedly." Tottenham play host to Wolves at the same venue tomorrow afternoon (2.05pm) where an official fan protest is expected to vent more frustration at the ownership. Interim manager Ryan Mason has pleaded for unity with Tottenham supporters.
