Wolves brilliantly declare themselves 2018-19 Premier League champions in cheeky dig at Big Six rebels

WOLVES have hilariously declared themselves Premier League champions for the 2018-19 season in a jovial jibe at the Big Six.

It comes after it was confirmed on Sunday night that Man Utd, Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham have all signed up to be a part of the controversial European Super League.

Wolves finished seventh behind the ‘Big Six’ two years ago after a brilliant first season back in the Premier League.

As a result, with all those who ended the season above them now threatening to join a breakaway tournament, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have jokingly announced themselves as top flight champions for the 2018-19 campaign in their Twitter bio.

Screenshotting their own profile, the club added: “It’s probably too late for a parade.”

Wolves finished the 2018-19 season a whopping 41 points behind title winners Man City, who clinched the trophy for a second successive year.

And it was City’s boss Pep Guardiola who slammed the idea of the ESL on Tuesday despite his club having signed up to it.

He said: “If you ask me about these teams that have been selected, I don’t know the reason why. Are they going to play this competition in the future?

“Sport is not sport when the relation between the effort and success and the effort and reward does not exist. So it is not sport.

“It is not sport if the success is already guaranteed. It is not sport and it doesn’t matter if you lose.

“That’s why I have said many times I want the best competition and the strongest competition possible. Especially the Premier League.

“And it’s not fair when one team fight, fight, fight, arrive at the top and afterwards cannot qualify because the success is already guaranteed for a few clubs.

“This statement is what I feel. I don’t know if it’s going to change and the people say ‘no, no, maybe four or five teams can go up and play in this competition’.

“But what happens if the other 15 don’t have a good season and every time they will still be there. This is not sport.”

The ESL proposal has received widespread criticism from fans, players, football’s governing bodies and the UK government.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson labelled the idea ‘very damaging’ for the sport.

Just 48 hours later, he then went on to label the Premier League’s Big Six a ‘cartel’.
