European Super League still alive - Perez
Due to political pressures, the Super League project is currently suspended.
president Florentino Perez has said that his hopes of keeping the Super League alive are still there and that legal action is under way.
Perez was the leader of a faction that competed against UEFA and identified alternative replacements, and was also elected president of the Super League. Due to the political pressure on the club, their weak alliance broke down and five Premier League clubs announced their withdrawal from the Super League project, which Real Madrid,Juventus
are currently loyal to. Now the president of Real Madrid has claimed that the structure of UEFA is a monopoly and they are trying to replace it with a better system.
"Of course it is still alive, right now there is a question raised in the Luxembourg Court, there will be a hearing shortly and it will rule on the issues we have raised. We believe that we have the right, within the European Community, to organise competitions between us, with UEFA.
"We understand that UEFA is a monopoly and in this Europe of 27 [EU member states] a pillar is that of competition."
UEFA tried to ban Real Madrid from the Champions League, but they did not succeed. Asked about the fear of getting banned, Perez said:
"We have never had that fear, and that was when they said it at the beginning.
"No, we want to win the Champions League. PSG is not our enemy. Neither Chelsea nor [Manchester] City. Everyone who competes is friends, we get along with everyone."
Asked about Kylian Mbappe, Perez said:
"His dream was to play for Real Madrid, we wanted to do it last August and they didn't let him out, he kept saying he wanted to play for Madrid and about 15 days before the situation changed," Perez said.
"He changes, they offer him other things, they put pressure on him and he is already another footballer.
"There is no one at Real Madrid above the club. He is a great footballer, he can win more than others but it is a collective sport and we have some values and principles that we can't change them. I love him, he made an effort and the pressure made him change his circumstances and it's not easy."
