Strongly worded threat from the president of "FIFA" against "dissident clubs"
"The dissident clubs calling for the launch of the European Super League competition" must bear the consequences of their decisions "as a result of this separation, President of the International Federation of Football Association (FIFA) Jani Infantino confirmed today that FIFA" is against this project without any doubt ".
Infantino said, "We in FIFA can only strongly oppose the creation of the Super League. It is a closed league, a split from the current body, from the leagues, from the national associations, from FIFA and from FIFA." "It is our duty to protect the European sport model, and therefore if a group decides to go their way they must bear the consequences of their choices. They are responsible for their choices. Either they are inside (the system) or abroad, it cannot be in between. Think about it. The topic, this should be clear, completely clear. "
Six English clubs (Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham), along with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Inter and Milan, Italy, have announced the launch of a competition that could destroy the European Champions League.
The European Union had threatened to exclude these clubs and prevent their players from participating in continental tournaments and local competitions, including the Champions League, but the president of Real Madrid and the president of the new Super League Florentino Perez considered this matter "impossible."
