Fans have labelled Leeds’ equaliser against Liverpool as a ‘goal for all of football’ on the back of the news surrounding the European Super League.
The owners of Liverpool and five other Premier League sides have agreed to take part in a breakaway competition with other teams from Spain and Italy.
Football supporters have ripped into the proposals, mainly due to the rule that the same 15 clubs will automatically qualify for the tournament irrespective of their performances in the domestic league.

Their official Twitter account posted: ‘LUFC hold Super League side Merseyside Reds to a 1-1 draw after late Llorente equaliser.’
Crystal Palace full-back Patrick van Aanholt got involved as well as he tweeted: ‘Leeds like they should be in the Super League though.’
