Super League: See Pep Guardiola, Ranieri Others’ Reactions

The Super League has been the front-burner in the world of football in recent days owing to the decisions of about 12 clubs coming together to establish a league.

The decision as claimed by Federation of International Football, FIFA and its European counterpart UEFA contravenes the rules of the game.

However, stakeholders have shared their view on the lingering crisis following the shocking announcement last weekend.

One of the notable names is Manchester City gaffer, Pep Guardiola who believes all parties must understand themselves.

Guardiola said, “This situation of the Super League has to be clarified and why they have taken these decisions. Why is Ajax not involved with all their success?! Explain this.”

Pep further said, “sport is not a sport when the success is guaranteed, and when the relation between the effort and reward don’t exist. It’s not a sport when it doesn’t matter if you lose. It’s not fair if teams fight at the top and cannot qualify”.

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis also denies the rumours about the invitation in the Super League. Laurentiis said, “JP Morgan, who’s him? I’ve not received any call yesterday night… I was sleeping”.

Claudio Ranieri, a former Chelsea and Leicester City coach said, “It’s very sad for me… Super League is so bad, I hope UEFA will stop them. Leicester story was something special and we’d lose these stories. It’s not just about football, I remember the feeling between Indian and English people celebrating LCFC together”.

PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi equally spoke against the formation of the Super League. He said, “We will continue working with UEFA. PSG have the firm belief that football is a sport for everyone. I have been consistent on this point since the very beginning”.
