Six Premier League clubs – Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Liverpool – have announced their intention to become founding members of the competition, which would see them play a selection of the biggest sides on the continent on a weekly basis.

It would appear, however, that Klich is one of the many who have been angered by the proposal.

Addressing the Polish star on Twitter, one Leeds fan wrote: “We need a footballer to speak up against it.

"There is only one man brave enough to speak up about the super league...

“Tell us what you think, Mateusz Klich”.

Klich subsequently responded to the tweet with a photo of a banner that read: “Created by the poor, stolen by the rich”.

The Elland Road talent isn’t the only high-profile figure to have voiced his disdain for the plans.

Most notably, pundit Gary Neville has been a vocal opponent telling Sky Sports: “I am a Manchester United fan and have been for 40 years but I am disgusted, absolutely disgusted.

"I am disgusted by Manchester United and Liverpool the most.

“Liverpool, they pretend (with) ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ (they are) the people’s club, the fans’ club.

“Manchester United – 100 years, born out of workers. And they are breaking away into a league without competition, that they can’t be relegated from?

“It is an absolutely disgrace. Honestly, we have to wrestle back power in this country from the clubs at the top of this league, and that includes my club.”
