‘Football will DIE,’ says Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who also declares that the European Super League is crucial and that ‘we will not give in.’
Florentino Perez, president of REAL MADRID, has declared that ‘football will die’ unless his team and fellow rebels can resurrect the vilified European Super League project.
The attempted breakaway in April was called off after nine of the twelve teams pulled out in the face of an outpouring of support from fans.
However, despite their current financial constraints, Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus are determined to get the plans back on track.
When asked about the failed Super League project this week, the haughty Perez, 74, claimed that football is being “distanced from the youth.”
Rather than suggesting that ticket prices be reduced so that young people can afford to watch football, he insisted on the existence of a Super League, despite opposition from fans.
Oil-rich clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City are threatening to knock Perez’s team off its perch.
“The pandemic has made us live one of the most difficult moments in the history of football,” he said at a Real Madrid meeting.
“The Super League is more than just a competition.
It is attempting to alter the dynamics of football because “if we do nothing, football will perish.”

“It is the project that will finally protect financial Fair Play and thus prevent clubs, whether they are states or not, from receiving significant financial support.”
“It’s also about teamwork and commitment to building a football infrastructure, as well as respect for national competitions.”
The founding clubs’ agreements expressly state that national competitions will be respected.
“The data shows that various entertainment channels are separating football from young people.
We’re driving away our fans.
“For example, Chelsea and Real Madrid, two historic teams, had never met until last season.
Another historic player, Ajax, was forced to play a preliminary phase the following year after reaching the semi-finals.
“This is an outdated format that should be phased out.
The Super League’s will be open and subject to change depending on what is requested at any given time.
The responsibility of looking after the future of football falls to Europe’s great clubs.
“We, not Uefa, are responsible for all operational costs and risks.”
Finally, in April, Uefa announced a new format with fewer and less important matches.
A project that received a lot of flak.
“The European Super League was announced by twelve of the world’s most important clubs, who established a company based in Madrid.”
Uefa denied any contact with the Super League and misled the public….
