‘I think football needs a change’ – Baggio on Super Leauge project

Former Italy forward Roberto Baggio believes there must be changes in football when he was asked about the breakaway Super League project, but insists the game belongs to the people.

The Super League project was publicly launched late at night on April 18 then imploded within 48 hours amid a furious backlash from fans and threats of governing bodies.

However, Baggio’s former team




, and

Real Madrid

have remained loyal to the project despite receiving threats from UEFA’s boss

Aleksander Ceferin


“I think football needs a change. It’s indisputable,”

Baggio told

Revista Libero

when asked about the topic.

“The speed with which the project collapsed, however, must make us think.

“To navigate towards new horizons, with new projects, we need capable men, with already consolidated experience.

“I would be disappointed if we missed the opportunity to build something necessary, because the world changes, people change and TV changes too.

“That said, in any process aimed at improving something existing, the only thing that matters is that it can benefit everyone and not just those who thought about it.

“We have to create a culture of sport, therefore also of football, but we must never forget that it belongs to the people.”
