Todd Boehly, the Blues owner, made some suggestions to the Premier League to consider All-Star game and the Serie A president revealed that they plan to take it into consideration.

Serie A

are going to consider

Todd Boehly

’s suggestion regarding an All-Star game, according to

Lorenzo Casini

, the league president. The new

Chelsea

owner thinks that the Premier League should look into the possibility of the proposal.

He believes that if there are All-Star fixtures, northern clubs’ players would be eager to compete with those in the south and the league can use the extra revenue for making the football pyramid wider than before.

However,

Liverpool

boss Jurgen Klopp and ex-Manchester United star Gary Neville do not think that it would be a good idea. Casini, on the other hand, thinks the idea “deserves attention”, and that his league are going to look into its possibility, mentioning the 1982 charity game the Europe played against the Rest of the World in the United States, with Franz Beckenbauer, Zico, Socrates and Michel Platini.

According to ANSA, Casini said: "

The idea of an All-Star Game in Serie A deserves attention.

"We will study the project and the clubs in the assembly will evaluate all the pros and cons.

"I recall the excitement of the Europe v Rest of the World match in August 1982 that included Dino Zoff, Marco Tardelli, Paolo Rossi and Giancarlo Antognoni, who played better than Michel Platini and Zico.

"We need to rediscover that spirit, involving clubs, presidents, directors and coaches, as well as the media and fans."
