Perez says Super League not dead

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has said that the Super League is not dead and that so far none of the teams have officially left.

“The ESL has not dissolved. Juve, Milan, have not left. Barcelona is reflecting on it. We could consider the top four clubs in each league. The target is to have more interesting games,” said Perez

ESPN’s Gabriel Marcotti reacted to the Real president’s interview by saying that, “he keeps talking because no one else will.”

Chelsea & City in firing line

Perez then went on the attack on the English clubs, notably Manchester City and Chelsea.

“Do you think Real Madrid fans are stupid? Do you really think I have to ask them if they would like big games on Tuesdays? There were only ’40’ Chelsea fans and if you want I will tell you who took them there,” said Perez.

“[Chelsea fans] were taking there by the same people that made players wear shirts tonight.”

An argument to say that 40 people were at the Chelsea protest was plainly wrong by the images that were shared across social media.

“Chelsea fans? There were 40 people outside Stamford Bridge… and if you want, I will tell you who took them there.”

He was then questioned whether it was Manchester City who were the English side which destabilised the others and he was not candid in his answer.

“Someone in the English group was not that interested and that was contagious, others showed fear and backed off.”

When asked if it were City he said, “They were never interested. If this project doesn’t come off, another one will.”

We were thinking of a second league

English clubs left not so much because of Boris Johnson or fans. The full reaction, specially from UEFA, was as if we had put a bomb

Why didn’t they let us explain it? Because some clubs don’t want us to change anything

The more Florentino Perez speaks, the clearer it becomes that it was actually better for there to be no communication around the Super League.

An overflow of nonsense, crowned by him saying there were only “40 Chelsea fans” protesting and “I can tell you who put them there” 🙃

Florentino Pérez:

“English fans protesting outside stadium was just staged.
Outside Chelsea stadium there were only 40 people and were manipulated”.

Real Madrid-Chelsea gonna be interesting.
