Arsene Wenger, the former manager of Arsenal in London and now the head of FIFA’s Global Development Division, appreciates the idea of creating the European Super League, you know, the European Premier League, and considers it a step against the English Premier League (EPL).
“The English Premier League surpasses other leagues. These leagues are trying to destroy the advantage that EPL has.
The biggest thing they can do is create a Europa League that will actually destroy the EPL. So if they could and reached an agreement with the big English clubs, it would happen.
We live in a time when club owners are investors. Their main task is to make money. “The European Super League is one of the ways to earn big money,” Skysports quotes Arsene Wenger as saying.
A few days earlier, former Barcelona and Real star Luis Figo also campaigned against the European Super League.
More than a dozen clubs from the English, German, Spanish, Italian and French, or European Top-5 Championships, are in talks to create a new draw – the European Premier League.
The organizers plan to launch the tournament in 2022. It is also known that 16-18 teams will play in the new draw. Investors are currently being sought for the Europa League. It is noted that $ 6 billion is needed to activate the league. The source of funds is JP Morgan Bank.
