There are no football clubs in the ten richest entities in the world, we must be doing something very wrong in old Europe,” Perez explained.

The only clubs that have tried to keep alive a league that would be direct competition for the Champions League are Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus.

Perez compared European football to tennis. “What is the point of depriving the fans of the big games? Nadal and Federer met 40 times. Nadal and Djokovic, 59, is it boring? Liverpool and Real Madrid have met nine times in 67 yearshe told the Madrid member assembly.

The Super League project was revived in July when legal proceedings alleging an abuse of a dominant position by UEFA were brought to the Court of Justice of the European Union at the request of a judge in Madrid approached by Super League bosses. UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin responded to Perez.

Once again, he has shown that his idea is to shut everything down, without games against smaller teams” he told a press conference in Rome. On Thursday, in a letter to shareholders, Agnelli confirmed his “commitment” to the project and suggested “establishing a direct link with sponsors who dare to take business risks and control of financial resources.”

On the same day, Barcelona presented their accounts and Eduard Romeu, their financial vice president, said “cto see the Superliga again would be positive.” It was followed by a Laporta interview with Sonora, reported by Marca, on Sunday. “A Superliga would be an improved Champions League, with a better format it would certainly be the most attractive competition in the world, said Barcelona’s president. However, Laporta said he would prefer not to have a closed format for the competition. “We must have an open Superliga where there is meritocracy,” he said. “I think the big clubs always playing against each other would be tiring,” he added. “Those who like football among us would end up getting tired. It is healthy and beautiful that a smaller team can beat a bigger team.
