The president of FC Barcelona – one of the founding clubs of the project -, Joan Laporta, revealed today, Friday, that there are several teams interested in joining the European Super League, such as Benfica, Porto, and Sporting, but also some foreign teams.
Now, two of the clubs mentioned are Roma and Feyenoord, who have already issued statements denying Laporta's account.
“As was publicly confirmed a few hours after the decision of the European Court of Justice on the Superliga issue, Roma confirms that it does not in any way support any type of project called Superliga. The club recalls that it has never changed its position on this issue, nor has it held discussions to follow a different path.” For the European Club Association clubs, in close cooperation with UEFA and FIFA.
“Feyenoord are very surprised by the reports in the international press that the club has agreed to participate in the Premier League. This is complete absurdity,” Feyenoord in turn confirmed.
Feyenoord is not exaggerating the budget in the international media, as the club will be looking to join the Premier League. This is total onzin.
