The former Arsenal boss, who is currently FIFA's head of development, is critical of the European Super League.


boss Arsene Wenger has criticized the European Super League, saying it would damage the integrity of football.

Top European clubs have announced that they will withdraw from European competition and compete in a new league called the European Super League. Arsenal is one of the 12 teams that will compete alongside 5 teams from England, 3 teams from Italy and 3 teams from Spain. Wenger now criticized the idea of holding the competition, claiming that the process would not continue.

He told



"I would say that’s a bad idea. Football has to stay united, it’s the most important thing.

"It’s based on sporting merit and overall to respect the history that has been built from European football.

"I believe, personally, that this idea will not go far.

"I don’t know what exactly is behind (it). There is a more dangerous idea behind it and it’s a big threat for the Premier League.

"When I was still in charge it was a lot going on from other countries to diminish the dominance of the Premier League and a project like that would certainly accelerate that."
