UEFA and Real Madrid fought a big battle over the Super League project.
president Florentino Perez has warned UEFA about the Super League and the issue of financial fair play.
Real Madrid were one of 12 clubs to announce their participation in the Super League, and despite nine clubs withdrawing from the competition, Los Blancos, along withBarcelona
, have declared their loyalty to the competition. UEFA repeatedly threatened the three clubs with fines and disqualification, but in the end, they managed to prove their legitimacy in court and remain in the Super League project. UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin had announced that the three clubs in the Super League were planning to kill football, but Perez denied the allegations.
"It is not just a new competition, it is much more, it is trying to change the dynamics of football,"
"It is also freedom, so that the clubs are masters of their destiny [with Financial Fair Play] and it is the project that will finally make it happen."
"The Super League is the project that will avoid situations in which clubs get indiscriminate support. It would only develop if it's compatible with the domestic leagues.
"It's time to remind UEFA who Real Madrid is. Real Madrid created FIFA along with seven federations, then created the Champions League in 1955 along with L'Equipe."
The clubs' legal battle with UEFA over the Super League project is expected to continue.
"It does not make sense and is very profitable for the rest of the clubs.
"I never imagined that I would be told by the press that they were going to take away our rights, the league being a mere marketer according to the law.
"It is an operation full of very serious irregularities and would have damaged our heritage.
"The fund is the same one that has tried to do the same in Germany and Italy where they failed. They approached several clubs in distress - it's absurd to even consider accepting that CVC deal."
