Real Madrid president Florentino Perez once again defends the Superlega claiming that the project – supported by Juventus and Barcelona – represents the best solution to cure “sick European football”. The president of Real, speaking at the General Assembly of the club’s members, expressed the hope that European justice will be able to rule in favor of the project which has not “faded away”. On the format, on which the main “criticisms according to which it does not take into account sporting merit” focus, Florentino Perez explained that the proposal envisages “a potential format with 25 percent of the seats open. The Super League is not closed, we have decided to adapt it “. The Real president complained about UEFA’s “threats and insults” and that is why he opted for “a constructive and free dialogue that addresses these serious problems”. For the president of Real, “there is no excuse: before, football was in the lead and now it is largely overtaken by US sport. The data does not allow for discussion, we are losing the global battle of entertainment and that football is the only global sport “. “Nadal and Federer have played 40 times, Nadal and Djokovic 59, is it boring? This has favored tennis and all players because tennis comes out stronger. Against Liverpool, in 67 years, we have played only nine times, Against the Chelsea, four. What is the point of depriving fans from all over the world of these matches? Only by promoting football as a global sport can we protect all clubs and for this it is essential to offer matches of the highest quality and interest “, he stressed. Perez highlighted that Uefa “is pushing for a reform of the Champions Cup in the opposite direction, increasing irrelevant matches”. For the Real president, on the other hand, “we need professional, modern and transparent management, and not work in old structures based on the past to offer a quality product that restores the passion for football”.
