Florentino Perez urges UEFA to remember who Real Madrid is

The European Super League fiasco appeared to be finished, but Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, like Andrea Agnelli, is not giving up hope. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez reminded UEFA to remember who his team is in the midst of ongoing European Super League and Financial Fair Play conflicts.

Last April, Madrid was one of the 12 founding clubs of the failed Super League, with nine of the teams swiftly withdrawing their interest in the wake of considerable outrage. Perez and Juventus’ Andrea Agnelli believed that the breakaway style would save the game, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin stated the trio tried to “destroy football.”

“It is not just a new competition, it is much more, it is trying to change the dynamics of football,” Perez said at Madrid’s Ordinary General Assembly on Saturday. “It is also freedom so that the clubs are masters of their destiny [with Financial Fair Play] and it is the project that will finally make it happen. The Super League is the project that will avoid situations in which clubs get indiscriminate support. It would only develop if it’s compatible with the domestic leagues.”

“It’s time to remind UEFA who Real Madrid is. Real Madrid created FIFA along with seven federations, then created the Champions League in 1955 along with L’Equipe. It does not make sense and is very profitable for the rest of the clubs,” Perez added. “I never imagined that I would be told by the press that they were going to take away our rights, the league being a mere marketer according to the law.”

“It is an operation full of very serious irregularities and would have damaged our heritage. The fund is the same one that has tried to do the same in Germany and Italy where they failed. They approached several clubs in distress – it’s absurd to even consider accepting that CVC deal.”
