Former West Ham United manager Harry Redknapp has claimed that the other 14 Premier League clubs would have "jumped at the chance" of being involved in the Super League.
The proposed European Super League would have seen the owners of the 'big six' clubs increase their profits and dividends and the plan was labelled as 'greedy' by many fans and pundits.
A Premier League meeting was held by the other 14 clubs to discuss whether the six involved in the breakaway league plans should be punished but an agreement could not be reached.
Redknapp wrote in The Sun that the Hammers would have snapped at the opportunity to be involved in such a league: "When the 14 who weren't invited to the proposed Super League were all kicking off, I had a little smile. If any of them had been asked, I'm sure they'd have jumped at it. If anyone said, 'Hang on a minute, Man City are out, we're looking for someone else,' they'd have all had their hands up.
"Remember a couple of years ago there was talk of playing one game abroad. Then it would have been two, then five, then half a season in China, America, all over the place.
"It's all about owners seeing their investment getting bigger. I've been there, I've seen it. The fans don't come into the equation for them."
Redknapp made reference to the greed of the owners at the top of the pyramid claiming that they could have helped the smaller clubs more.
"Look at Bury when they were going under. There are Premier League clubs in the area who could have helped out, it would have cost them next to nothing, but no one came forward. There is no interest in anyone but themselves. That's every owner, especially at that level - it's all about their club and nothing else," he added.
The likelihood of the 'big six' being punished for their intentions is diminishing as time goes on, as complications arise surrounding the legalities of the contracts they signed.
