The Super League is far from over. This closed European league project bringing together the largest stables of the Old Continent quickly fell through, just a few hours after its creation. A flop resulting from the rapid and massive withdrawal of the 6 English clubs (Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham), quickly followed by 3 other founding members of this Super League (Atlético de Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan) .
But since then, the war has raged between UEFA and the last three rebels not letting go, namely FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus. Aleksander Ceferin, the boss of the governing body of European football, for example has never stopped sending spikes and tackling these three European leaders. The reason ? Barça, Real and Juve have clearly not given up on the idea of creating this Super League and coming to the end of this very controversial project.
“The project is alive”
While UEFA recently suspended its proceedings against the last three slingers, Joan Laporta, the president of FC Barcelona, reaffirmed his club’s position in favor of the Super League, with very strong words to this subject. “As soon as we get the green light from justice, we’re going to create the biggest sports competition in the world (the Super League) and everyone will want to join us. We are currently working to find solutions, ” in particular dropped the boss of the Blaugranas during the General Assembly of the club culé this Sunday, in comments reported by Mundo Deportivo.
Joan Laporta ardently defended the Super League during Barça’s GA, as if to convince his members that everything had to be clearly done to see this project through to the end. For the moment, the president of the FCB cannot obtain from his own a vote in favor of this closed league in the absence of a clear and defined format. But the one who was re-elected to the presidency of the Camp Nou residents on March 7 seems more determined than ever to defend his position against all odds. UEFA knows what to expect. This war is far from over.
