UEFA have said no to the formation of the proposed European Super League amid reports stating that the new competition will include Manchester United and Liverpool.
RTE Sport report that both Liverpool and United are in talks over the creation of a new European League with the World governing body FIFA said to be backing the proposal. However, European football governing body UEFA have since came out and said that this would be “boring”.
UEFA said in a statement on their website, “The UEFA President has made it clear on many occasions that UEFA strongly opposes a Super League”. The statement continued, “UEFA and the clubs are committed to build such a strength not to destroy it (Champions League) to create a Super League of 10, 12 or 24 clubs which would inevitably become boring.
FIFA said in a statement that “It does not wish to comment and participate in any speculation about topics which come up every now and then.” Manchester United and Liverpool have not commented on the speculation.
