In what appears to be a backlash at the recent releases from European Football Association and Federation of International Football Association, Florentino Perez, Real Madrid president who also chair the Super League committee has challenged both the world governing body and its European counterpart.
Florentino Perez insists the Super League must hold irrespective of FIFA or UEFA decisions. He made this claim in response to the threat by two governing bodies.
“If we can’t find an agreement with UEFA, we will NOT back down. If they want to wait for 2024 to make the reform, they can wait. We’re not waiting for anyone because we need the Super League”.
Recall both FIFA and UEFA have threaten to ban all actors involved in the Super League formation.
In his words, “This #SuperLeague is not for the rich, but it’s to save football. If this continues, football will disappear and by 2024 we would already be dead. This is the only way to save everyone: big, medium and small clubs”.
“Boris Johnson said he will do everything to cancel the #SuperLeague because they explained to him that the Premier League would disappear: it’s false, it’s not true. Everything will go back to normal…”.
Perez further said, “Barcelona are going through a difficult economic situation, Laporta immediately understood and accepted like all the great clubs in the world. This SuperLeague will save the entire world of football”.
“We have not invited PSG yet, we’re gonna talk with many clubs and explicate them about the #SuperLeague project. If Bayern refuses to join it won’t cancel, don’t worry. We also will hire some of the best referees in the world”.
It seems this Super League saga is here to stay… It will likely be the talking point in the world of football for the most part of the judging by the refusal of all parties to reach a compromise.
