The elite clubs across Europe have decided to forman invite only competition known as the European Super League. This has received a huge backlash from the footballing community who have rejected the proposal. Moreover UEFA and FIFA have said that should the players play in the Super League they won’t be allowed to play in the FIFA World Cup.
Ed Woodward and Andrea Agnelli were the pioneers of the Super League
Amongst the club’s who are the founding members, Manchester United are also present. Club owner Ed Woodward earlier resigned from all of his duties in the UEFA plus Manchester United have also disassociated with the ECA.
UEFA President Alexander Ceferin has labelled Manchester United and Juventus owner’s Ed Woodward and Andrea Agnelli as snakes. These two are reportedly the pioneers of all the talks of the European Super league. Understable as Manchester United haven’t even progressed an inch in Europe for the last 6-7 years and Juventus remain bottlers.
If I start with Ed Woodward, because it will be shorter, I didn’t have much contact with him but he called me last Thursday in the evening. He said he is very satisfied with the reforms, that he fully supports the reforms and that the only thing he would like to speak about is Financial Fair Play. Obviously, he had already signed something else.
I don’t want to speak much about Andrea Agnelli. He is probably one of the biggest disappointments or the biggest of all. I don’t want to be too personal but the fact is that I have never seen a person that would lie so many times and persistently than he did. It was unbelievable.
I spoke with him on Saturday afternoon and he said that these are only rumours, don’t worry, nothing is going on, then he said I will call you in one hour and turned off his phone. The next day, we get the announcement.
