The remaining fourteen Premier League clubs have voiced their "unanimous" and "vigorous" rejection of plans for a breakaway Super League. 

They've been left angered by the decision of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur to join the rebel league.

Representatives of the Premier League, FA and PFA met with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday, who promised to drop a "legislative bomb" on the breakaway sextet.

Premier League statement: 

The Premier League, alongside The FA, met with clubs today to discuss the immediate implications of the Super League proposal.

The 14 clubs at the meeting unanimously and vigorously rejected the plans for the competition.

The Premier League is considering all actions available to prevent it from progressing, as well as holding those Shareholders involved to account under its rules.

The League will continue to work with key stakeholders including fan groups, Government, UEFA, The FA, EFL, PFA and LMA to protect the best interests of the game and call on those clubs involved in the proposed competition to cease their involvement immediately.

The Premier League would like to thank fans and all stakeholders for the support they have shown this week on this significant issue.

The reaction proves just how much our open pyramid and football community means to people.
