There are a lot of worrying reports coming from Football Leaks, which has been reported in German publication Der Spiegel.
Manchester City and PSG were named as working with Gianni Infantino to get around FFP regulations, but there is also discussion of a European Super League – led by seven founder clubs.
Liverpool are NOT one of these who’ve been in initial talks, unlike AC Milan, Arsenal, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Manchester United – but are one of four extra clubs who’ve been hypothetically named as a ‘founder’ – along with Chelsea, PSG and Manchester City.
The idea is that these 11 teams will be guaranteed membership for 20 years. Five other sides will make up a 16-team league, including Marseille, Borussia Dortmund, Inter, Roma and Atletico Madrid, initially.
Football Leaks claim to have seen documents, and many of them, that prove this plan is being sounded out – although there’s been no word from any club – with Bayern actually denying their involvement outright.
For us, it seems nonsensical. Domestic football is the cornerstone of the game and by chasing revenue, Liverpool would play a part in ruining the game in England. Hopefully, the club has as little time for the proposal as we do.
