Florentino Pérez makes appeal for new Euro Super League
"A reform in football can wait no longer and we need to address it, it's our responsibility" stated the Real Madrid president at the AGM on Sunday.
In the closing stages of his speech at Sunday's annual general assembly meeting, club president Florentino Pérez expressed strong defence for the proposed European Super League. “Things will, never be the same again stated Pérez, “ the [coronavirus] pandemic has changed everything. It has made us all more vulnerable and that includes the football world. Football needs formulas to make it more competitive and exciting".
“This club has been a part of every innovation and has protected these innovations in our sport. It was the only club to be a founding member of FIFA in 1904, together with seven national federations. In 1955, L’Équipe and Real Madrid were the driving forces behind the creation of the European Cup - a revolutionary moment that changed the history of the game.”
“Without all these changes, football wouldn’t have become what it is today - and we need a new change. Football has to face up to this new period […]. Reform of the game cannot wait; we have to tackle it. We have the responsibility to fight for this change.”
