European Super League brought some ups and downs in the world of football. With threats from UEFA and FIFA, six Premier League clubs withdrew their registration from the breakaway competition. Personally, some clubs involved in the project expressed disappointment with the way it was presented and football officials shared their comments on ESL.
The remarks came as French champions Paris Saint-Germain joined a growing list of elite clubs, saying they would not participate in the new league. Instead, PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi has extended support for UEFA and the current Champions League, an event that has been Europe’s elite football competition for more than half a century.
“We believe that any proposal without the support of UEFA – an organization that has been working for the advancement of European football interests for nearly 70 years – does not solve the problems currently facing the football community, but rather Instead driven by self-interest,” he told.
Al-Khelaifi’s resignation came on Monday after being equaled by leaders Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, two German powers who were seen as candidates to cater to the permanent members of the 15-team Super League. Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam, four-time European champions, also said they would not participate.
“This is not a game when the relationship between effort and success, effort and reward does not exist,” said Pep Guardiola Manchester City’s decorated coach, one of the founding members of the Super League. “Success is already guaranteed if it is not a game.” If you lose then this is not a game. “
The English coach, Liverpool’s German coach and longtime rival of closed competition, Jürgen Klopp, said he would talk to the team’s American bosses about the plan. As of Tuesday morning, Klopp, who is extremely popular in England after leading Liverpool to domestic and European titles in the last two years, has become a favorite among the odds to become the next coach to leave the Premier League club.
