La Liga president fears that European Super League would 'kill' Champions League
- UEFA have widely been discussing the concept of European Super League.
- Javier Tebas, La Liga president believes it would kill Champions League.
- 'Economic interests would only serve the biggest clubs'.
The concept of Super League has been widely discussed in UEFA headquarters in recent years with reports suggesting that in 2018 top clubs held advanced undercover talks about the creation of a new continental club competition which will replace Champions League.
Many coaches and executives alike have warned that the idea possesses a serious threat to European football and now Javier Tebas, La Liga president adds to the universal discontent in his interview to Canal 11:
"We're totally against it. It has a different format than the Champions League and it would make the competition practically closed.
"The format would kill the competition. Economic interests would only serve the biggest clubs, at a time when we're trying to promote competitiveness."
Earlier, Spanish radio station Cadena Cope reported that as many as sixteen European clubs with Real Madrid among them will be founding a new major continental club tournament, the so-called European Super League. The grand scheme behind the new format of the competition is to move the games of Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and other national competitions to mid-week, thus freeing the weekends for the games of European Super League.
