Following reports of a Super League being formed by twelve of Europe’s top clubs, Ada Hegerberg is speaking out.
The Olympique Lyonnais forward tweeted on Monday, stating that “greed is not the future.”

The initiative has already been rebuked by FIFA and numerous FAs throughout Europe, as well as UEFA chief of women’s football Nadine Kessler.
