The newly emerging Premier League, brought in by 12 European giants, has received a massive flurry of criticism. Florentino Perez, president of Real, one of its founders, tried to defend the project …
“When something changes, some people oppose it. With the amount of money clubs are currently receiving from the Champions League, by 2024, when the format is changed, all the clubs will disappear. Big, medium and small. Our league will be profitable and the money will go to all, it should be.” I explain to everyone that it is not just a league for the rich, it is my league to save all the clubs, without it, football will die, watching goes down, the price of broadcast rights is falling, young people are no longer interested in football because they have other things we just had to do something, we are all about to collapse , We all lost five billion euros together, only Real lost 400 million euros in two seasons and if you only have TV revenue, the solution is to play more attractive matches “that fans will watch all over the world. That is why we came up with the idea that instead of the Champions League, we will play a great league where all the big clubs will play it, and thanks to that we will return what we lost. “ Explanation of the first man in the white ballet, whose words I heard on aktualne.cz.
However, the other characters – both current and past – see it differently. How does Sir Alex Ferguson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Louis Figo or Jurgen Klopp, who is also involved with Liverpool in the project, face the changes?
“The creation of the Super League is a departure from the seventy years of tradition in European football. We have played for United in the Champions League Final four times and it has always been an exceptional experience.”
“The most important thing is the fans, so you have to respect them. He asked the twelve clubs, “What do the fans think of their idea?” No. This is a shame. “
“This project is disgusting and unfair, and I am disappointed that it is supported by the clubs I have played for. Let’s fight it.”
“I love football and it has been a part of my life since time immemorial. As a player and now as a club owner, I know that without fans, football is nothing. Football should be for everyone, it must be fair and sport-based success. Whoever we love is at risk. “.
New Superliga for elect only? Embarrassing, they are greedy impostors, Neville or Carragher demons
“This so-called Premier League is nothing but a wonderful thing. It is a greedy and cruel move that will destroy youth and women’s football and the entire football community. It will only serve the owners who have lost interest in the fans long ago and are not interested in them. Sports competitions. This is sad.”
In fact, for the first time, I heard about it like everyone else. To be honest, we had some information, but very little. I understand why people are so upset. “
“Children grow up wanting to win the World Cup and the Champions League, not any Super League. The best thing about the big matches is that they only take place once or twice a year, not every week. This is difficult for all football fans to understand.”
“If the Premier League passes, all dreams will end. I love football, so I can’t be silent. I believe in the revised Champions League, but not when the rich steal what humans have made, which is no less than the most beautiful sport on the planet.”
Champions League title celebrations may be held in Paris, and other semi-finalists will be disqualified
