The president of Barcelona, Joan Laporta, has declared for the first time about the creation of the European Super League, reports Zeri.info.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two Spanish clubs that have not yet officially left the European Super League.
“We are taking a prudent position. Tournament membership was a necessity. The big clubs invest heavily in development and we had to claim our income distribution rights.
It was supposed to be an attractive tournament based on sporting achievements. We stand by our leagues and are ready for an open dialogue with UEFA. To create this, we need more resources. I think we will reach an understanding on this issue.
Some clubs have been under pressure, but the offer is still valid. We invest a lot, we have very high salaries. “All this must be taken into account,” Laporta said.
Recall that the creation of the European Super League has been strongly opposed by UEFA, football fans and not only, causing many clubs to withdraw from the creation of this competition. /Zeri.info
