“You know things are serious when Jordan Henderson messages the Premier League Captains WhatsApp groupBurnley skipper Ben Mee said as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
The Reds midfielder is well respected among his peers, obviously, and has understandably played a major role in his side’s position against the news of a separatist European ‘Super League’ earlier this month.
Liverpool players have taken to social media to tell fans they don’t want the proposed plans to come to fruition, a move that has caught the attention of fans across the country.
Mee revealed more details about the WhatsApp panel chat, again cited by the Echo: “We all shared our like views on the matter there, and it goes without saying that they weren’t positive.

“Members of the clubs involved found themselves in an extremely difficult position, knowing that their employers were trying to do something against their will. They love football and wouldn’t want anything to happen to the Premier League.
“The captains are willing to put the rivalries aside and talk to each other, which I don’t think would have happened until last year.“
Within 48 hours of the initial joint announcement of the 12 clubs involved in setting up the European ‘Super League’ proposal, it was revealed that Henderson had called an emergency with his fellow captains.
The Liverpool midfielder, a true leader, continues to set a fantastic example and works off the pitch which makes the Anfield loyalist proud and grateful to be their captain.
