The proposed European Super League has attracted the attention of the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson; leaving him with the option of calling for a meeting with the concerned officials in the round leather game.
Those who are expected to be at the meeting are officials from football governing bodies the FA and the Premier League, as well as fans’ representatives.
The latest proposed European Super League, which includes six leading English clubs, has been described as “ludicrous” by the PM.
Meanwhile, the 12 founding members of the league face a fierce backlash after unveiling proposals for a breakaway tournament.
On the reason for their decision, one revealed that they were doing it to “save football”
Real Madrid President Florentino Perez, also shared his opinion concerning the development. He said the decision to create the new league, which his club would be a part of, was in part taken because “young people are no longer interested” in the game.
While speaking on a Spanish TV show, Perez disclosed that “Audiences are decreasing and rights are decreasing and something had to be done. We are all ruined. Television has to change so we can adapt.”
So far, the remaining 14 Premier League clubs not taking part in the idea are yet to discuss their response.
