Florentino Perez: European Super League Can Revive Sick Football

Florentino Perez, Real Madrid president, claims that football is “sick” and the resurrection of the European Super League project will be a good way to heal it, with users of fr.goldenrivieracasino.com citing it.

The Los Blancos outfit was one of the several clubs in April last year that signed up for the breakaway league project. However, the project didn’t last long as fans were against the idea once it was brought to their attention.

Although the six English teams withdrew from the project, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus didn’t renounce the European Super League, with Perez restating his support for the project in Madrid’s annual general meeting on Sunday, and Martin Tyler is not in support of it.

Speaking to the media, Perez said: “To fix a problem, you have to first recognise that you have a problem. Our beloved sport is sick. It’s losing its leadership as a global sport.

“We mustn’t be confused by the impact of Real Madrid’s (Champions League) run (last season) when we were involved in seven games of the highest intensity and interest.

“That’s why we believe European competitions must change, to offer fans top-level games year-round between the strongest teams, with the best players competing.

“The Super League format will never be an obstacle stopping a constructive and free dialogue to address the very serious problems in European football. Problems that we must urgently solve.”

Perez went on to claim that it is quite “staggering” that Liverpool and Real, two of Europe’s most decorated teams, have only met each other nine times in over 60 years of European competition.

He continued: “(In men’s tennis, Rafael) Nadal and (Roger) Federer played each other 40 times in 15 years. So far, Nadal and (Novak) Djokovic have faced each other 59 times in 16 years.

“Is this boring? These historic clashes have grown tennis as a whole.

“In football the figures are staggering. It turns out we have played Liverpool, a historic team with six European Cups, only nine times in 67 years. And only three times in Madrid.”
