Since announcing the Super League, the clubs involved including Liverpool FC, have seen pushback from every direction possible. Supporters, clubs not involved in the competition, players, managers and now even government agencies. Liverpool in particular have seen pushback from Jurgen Klopp and James Milner. 

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, has joined the fight against the newly formed Super League.

The Athletic UK has reported that Boris Johnson has been working with supporter groups from each of the Premier League's 'big six' clubs. In those meetings, the Prime Minister has said that he will 'kill off' proposals for the Super League. 

However, one can assume that if the so called 'Founding Clubs' are willing to work with UEFA and FIFA that they would also be willing to work with government agencies. 

In the statement released by the 12 Founding Clubs, they announced their intent to work with footballing agencies. 

"Going forward, the Founding Clubs look forward to holding discussions with UEFA and FIFA to work together in partnership to deliver the best outcomes for the new League and for football as a whole." 

On top of this, the Super League has provided clubs with a massive amount to help them with legal fees and initial investments. This amount is €3.5 billion, which should help defend the Super League against any parties who wish to stop it from happening. 

Boris Johnson's big proposal to supporter groups was that he can stop games from taking place in England. This would leave Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool without a home for Super League matches.
