A furious Gary Neville has hit out at the launch of a breakaway European Super League, labelling the English clubs involved a "disgrace" and calling for them to face sanctions from the Premier League.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Tottenham have agreed to join a breakaway European Super League to rival the UEFA Champions League.

The plans have prompted widespread condemnation, with the Premier League issuing a statement saying a super league would "destroy" the premise of open competition, and UEFA threatening to ban participating clubs from existing domestic competitions.
