Ex Chelsea and Liverpool attacker Joe Cole has says any thought of the Super League being reassembled must be ‘stamped out’.
J. Cole warned that the billionaire owners responsible for the controversial plot must be held accountable in order to forestall any future threat of a breakaway.
“I can’t believe they could have been that stupid,” Cole said on BT Sport. “Maybe it was an opening gambit let the world know what they want to do and two, three years down the line they are still going to want to implement this.
“They aren’t going to go away and get back in their box. This is something they are going to want… they want to make sure all their shareholders get value for their money, that is all they are concerned with and I can’t see it going away.
“The only thing we can do in my opinion is we know what they want to do and we have to hold them accountable for their actions.
“If they insinuate they are going to do it again you have to stamp it out there and then. I thought the promises were quite empty. As men you hold them accountable to their actions and not just their word. Because I don’t believe their words for one second.”
