A little tap of cold water for the supporters of a European Premier League.
We remind you of the basic idea for those who were not there when the first sounds of the hallway resounded on Tuesday: bringing together the 18 best European clubs from the five major leagues (England, Spain, Germany, France and Italy) in a one and the same league, the European Premier League, and make them face each other during the windows of European matches with play-offs at stake.
"The principles of solidarity, promotion, relegation and open leagues are not negotiable," said UEFA, whose interests do not go in the direction of an elitist league organized by Fifa, an idea it qualifies in passing "boring".
The Zurich-based organization preferred not to comment on the rumors.
Florentino Pérez at the helm?
In France and according to RMC, the potentially confirmed clubs have all denied having been approached by anyone with the aim of integrating the European Premier League.
Finally, in Spain, if Javier Tebas holds the same speech as UEFA, Florentino Perez would actively campaign for its implementation by 2022. A wishful thinking that does not date from yesterday for the president of Real, as we explained it to you several months back.
UEFA, Fifa and Florentino in the middle ... The World Club, the future theater of a "Game of Thrones" of football?
