Real Madrid President Florentino Perez says European Super League is in Stand-by for Now

 Florentino Perez claims the European Super League is in ‘stand-by’ as the Real Madrid president remains bullish amid fierce backlash to the controversial plans.


The new competition was announced on Sunday with 12 founder member clubs announcing their involvement to the radical plans.


It would have seen those clubs guaranteed a place in the competition every season, along with vast financial rewards.


It would have effectively been an end to the Champions League, but widespread condemnation led to its effective cancellation 48 hours later.


Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City, Man United and Tottenham all withdrew amid protests from fans, while clubs on the continent slowly followed.


Perez, who would have been heading up the European Super League, claims the plans are by no means dead.


In an interview with El Larguero: “The Super League poject is now in stand-by, I can confirm.


“Juventus and AC Milan have not left the Super League. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan are still in talks to find solutions.


“If this project didn’t work, another one will. Remember: all the 12 clubs have signed a binding contract.”


He continued: “I am a bit sad, disappointed. We have been working three years on this project, on fighting the current financial situation in Spanish football. It is easy to understand – you cannot touch La Liga, so you look for more money midweek and UCL format is obsolete.


“I have never seen aggression greater on the part of the president of UEFA and other presidents of Liga, it was orchestrated, it surprised it all. Never seen anything like it – insults, threats, as if we had killed someone, killed football.



“We are just working on saving football, after this pandemic. Madrid income falling from 900m to 600m this year. We have worked very hard on something that would satisfy everyone – and we did expect such a response.”


On the British club’s decision to withdraw, Perez said: “There was someone in the English six clubs who did not have much interest. That started to affect the others, there was fear. One of the English clubs was never really convinced.


“There was a campaign, totally manipulated, that we were going to finish the national leagues. That we were ending football, it was terrible. But we were working for football to survive.”


“There are people with privileges who do not want to lose them, and are willing to run clubs, although when the clubs are ruined they will lose their privileges.”


“The English clubs tried to do something, but they were being told they were killing football. But there is no other solution, than the Super League. Or somebody invents something else


They are leaving due to UEFA putting on a show, which surprised me. I don’t want to get into it with the UEFA president, but he needs to be able to talk. It was like we had thrown an atomic bomb. They did not let us explain, as they did not want anything to change.”


“It cannot be that in England, the six lose money, and 14 make money. In Spain the top three lose money, and the others make money. It cannot continue – at the moment the rich are those who are losing money.”




Joel Glazer Manchester United Owner Apologies to Fans Over European Super League Flaws


To all Manchester United supporters,


Over the past few days, we have all witnessed the great passion which football generates, and the deep loyalty our fans have for this great club.

You made very clear your opposition to the European Super League, and we have listened. We got it wrong, and we want to show that we can put things right.


Although the wounds are raw and I understand that it will take time for the scars to heal, I am personally committed to rebuilding trust with our fans and learning from the message you delivered with such conviction.


We continue to believe that European football needs to become more sustainable throughout the pyramid for the long-term. However, we fully accept that the Super League was not the right way to go about it.


In seeking to create a more stable foundation for the game, we failed to show enough respect for its deep-rooted traditions –promotion, relegation, the pyramid – and for that we are sorry.


This is the world’s greatest football club and we apologise unreservedly for the unrest caused during these past few days.


It is important for us to put that right.


Manchester United has a rich heritage and we recognise our responsibility to live up to its great traditions and values.


The pandemic has thrown up so many unique challenges and we are proud of the way Manchester United and its fans from Manchester and around the world have reacted to the enormous pressures during this period.


We also realise that we need to better communicate with you, our fans, because you will always be at the heart of the club.


In the background, you can be sure that we will be taking the necessary steps to rebuild relationships with other stakeholders across the game, with a view to working together on solutions to the long-term challenges facing the football pyramid.


Right now, our priority is to continue to support all of our teams as they push for the strongest possible finish to the season.


In closing, I would like to recognise that it is your support which makes this club so great, and we thank you for that.


With best regards,


Joel Glazer

European Super League proposal six Premier League teams withdrawn from the competition

 All six Premier League teams involved in the European Super League have formally withdrawn from the competition.


Manchester City were the first club to formally pull out after Chelsea had signalled their intent to do so by preparing documentation to withdraw.


The other four sides - Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham - have all now followed suit


The 12-team Super League was announced on Sunday to widespread condemnation.


Manchester City confirmed they have "formally enacted the procedures to withdraw" from the Super League.


Liverpool said their involvement in the proposed breakaway league "has been discontinued".


Manchester United said they had "listened carefully to the reaction from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders" in making their decision to not take part.


Arsenal apologised and said they had "made a mistake", adding they were withdrawing after listening to their fans and the "wider football community".


Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said the club regretted the "anxiety and upset" caused by the proposal.









Jose Mourinho Sacked As Tottenham Hotspur Manager

 Jose Mourinho was sacked as manager of Tottenham Hotspur on Monday after a poor run of form, according to Sky Sports.



A 2-2 draw on Friday against Everton left Tottenham, Champions League finalists in 2019, in seventh place in the Premier League and unlikely to reach the top four.


Mourinho took charge in November 2019, replacing Mauricio Pochettino. The club were yet to confirm whether Mourinho was still in charge.


Tottenham face a League Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.


The London club is among 12 that shocked the football world on Monday by announcing the formation of a breakaway European Super League.


Super League: Premier League has called a meeting for Tuesday morning of the 14 clubs who are not part of the European Super League discussions

 The Premier League has called a meeting for Tuesday morning of the 14 clubs who are not part of the European Super League discussions.

The so-called 'big six' have not been invited to attend.


It will be a first opportunity for those clubs to formally discuss next steps, amid suggestions that breakaway sides could be excluded from their domestic competitions.


Standard Sport understands West Ham will discuss the plans for a Super League with their Independent Supporters’ Committee on Monday before Karren Brady attends the Premier League meeting.


The club are wholeheartedly against the idea, a similar attitude held by many vocal in the fallout from the announcement.


Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl reiterated his stance against the move at his press conference earlier in the day.


He said: "There cannot be any other opinion about it. It's a big threat, what I see coming up, war, if you want, from the big clubs.


"We will see what the future brings but it's a big threat and we have to fight against it.


"I hope we have the fans with us and without the fans football won't work. They have a lot of power, these big clubs."


Sir Alex Ferguson said: “Talk of a Super League is a move away from 70 years of European club football. In my time at United, we played in four Champions League finals and they were always the most special of nights.”
