Florentino Pérez, leader of the proposal to implement a ‘superleague’ in European football and the current president of Real Madrid, has again accused UEFA of making the sport more and more ‘sick’. and called for the court’s decision to be expedited.
Florentino Perez the Real Madrid president once again defended the creation “Super League” He represented European football and, incidentally, urged UEFA to follow the example of the Professional Tennis Players Association (ATP) at organizational level.
As the leader of the idea to bring together the most popular and successful teams from the “Old Continent” in the same tournament every year, the Spanish director stressed that he would like it ‘Court makes decisions that mark the future of sport’ quickly.
Perez announced all things if the proposal was given the green light The club will work “together” to “excite the fans throughout the year, reverse the tide of European football and defend the sport in pressure-free debate” and “freedom to choose its destiny in Europe”. .
“To solve the problem, you have to start recognizing that you have a problem. Football is sick. As you can see, football is losing its leadership and must be reversed before it’s too late.” emphasized the boss of the meringue cast.
Similarly, Florentino delves into the supposed needs of football and compares a matchup between tennis legends to a classic duel. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer could not transition continuously to football in competitions like the Champions League.
“The majority of sports are organized for entertainment, so why not football? Legends like Nadal and Federer have played 40 times in 15 years, while Nadal and Djokovic have played 59 times in 16 years. Played but bored? Tennis thrives on clashes between the best players, and in football six-time Champions League winners Liverpool have faced each other only nine times in 67 years and Madrid three times. We’ve only played against each other twice.” he lashed out at
Furthermore, he pointed out that: “If the rules of European football (UEFA) were applied to other sports, Nadal and Federer wouldn’t have faced each other three times in the last few years.” .
For the Real Madrid coach, the ‘show’ in which the Spanish team won the last Champions League ‘helped bring back the passion for football in the crowd’. The competition “has to change and has to offer games all year round. The highest level to get young people back into football.”
Because of this, he was incredible in front of the new competitive model of “Champions”. “I cannot understand that UEFA will only add to the number of insignificant matches with a new model, alienate fans further and accelerate the decline of football.” .
“Only the NFL (American Football), with 285 games per season, exceeds the audiovisual revenues of the Champions League, Europa League and the five major European leagues with more than 2,000 games a year. No excuses, data indisputable. , football is clearly losing the battle of entertainment.The diagnosis of the disease is clear: we need modern management, not the old structures of the last century, quality products to rekindle our passions, new competition to improve everything.” he said.
