The whole football world is in shock after the official announcement of the European Super League was made by the 12 founder clubs. 3 Spanish clubs – Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, 3 Italian clubs – Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan and 6 English clubs – Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have agreed on the formation of the European Super League.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez will be the first chairman of the European Super League. Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, Manchester United co-owner Joel Glazer, Liverpool owner John Henry and Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke will be the vice-presidents of the Super League.
However, UEFA and FIFA, along with the domestic leagues, have already announced officially that they will take action against the clubs participating in the European Super League. The statement warns of potential legal action against teams creating a new European Super League. They’ve also warned players involved could be banned from representing their country.
ESL chairman Florentino Perez has now reassured the players and the clubs that they will not be banned by UEFA and FIFA.
The Super League chairman said in an interview with El Chiringuito on Monday night: “The players should remain calm because the threats won’t happen. But those who run the monopolies at UEFA have to be transparent. UEFA doesn’t have a good image.”
“They presented a [Champions League] format that no one understands, and they say in 2024 it will start. By 2024 we will be dead! There are clubs that have lost hundreds of millions.”
