The president of Barcelona has spoken for the first time about the importance of the European Super League and the role of the partners in the decision.
The president of Barcelona, Joan Laporta, has finally ruled on the football Super League, where Bara remains with Real Madrid. The leader has assured that this competition is “a necessity” because it will contribute “more resources” to the big clubs to make a “show” according to. “It is absolutely necessary that the big clubs express our opinion regarding the economic distribution. We are supporters of the state leagues and we will speak with UEFA,” added the Barça president in statements to TV3.
Regarding the exit of the project of the six Premier League clubs, first, and of the three Italians, later, as well as Atltico de Madrid, it has been noted “pressure in some clubs” that have made them “value it differently.” After this situation, Barcelona has decided to take a position of “prudence” and has transferred the important role that partners will have on this project: “The Super League is a necessity, but the last word will be our partners, as it should be. The big clubs contribute a lot of resources and it is normal that in the cast we have the opportunity to say ours “.
However, while he was campaigning to return to the club’s presidency, Laporta critic this project: “I think the Super League takes on the football business. It’s just a question of money”. Laporta argued for this idea, explaining that money could kill the essence of sport. His alternative was a “Club Super World Cup every two years alternating with the National Teams World Cup.” Now his priority is the project he tried to discredit just three months ago.
