Bray Wanderers have served up one of the most viewed Twitter messages involving the proposed European Super League, as they mocked Tottenham in comical fashion after it was confirmed the north London club are founders members of the proposed breakaway.

Six English clubs have agreed to join a new breakaway European Super League, it has been announced.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham have linked up with six European clubs – three from Spain and three from Italy – to create a rival competition to the Champions League.

It is anticipated three more clubs will join the breakaway group as founding members with the new competition, which will begin “as soon as practicable” to eventually feature 20 teams.

Yet Tottenham's participation in the competition designed to replace the Champions League has created a stir, with the club that has failed to win an English league title since 1961 not considered by many football lovers to be a genuine European giant.

That inspired Bray Wanderers to send out this tweet mocking Spurs, with the response confirming it hit a note with football fans:

News of the breakaway competition leaked out before it was officially announced and had already provoked a fierce backlash from UEFA and various national leagues and associations.

They pointed out the competition was unsanctioned and clubs and players risked bans by being involved.

Now the clubs involved could face severe punishments, with exclusion from their domestic leagues certain to be at the top of the agenda in England, Spain and Italy.
