Tebas similes Super League to a wolf trying to fool European football

European Super League announced a relaunched plan on Thursday that sees the tournament contain up to 80 teams in a multi-divisional format. The La Liga boss Tebas ridicules the new plan.

After their primary 12-team plan drew a lot of backlash in 2019,

European Super League relaunched a new plan

containing 60 to 80, guaranteeing clubs 14 games per season.

Javier Tebas

believes the platform is only interested in how it might serve to benefit the rich clubs.


The Super League is the wolf, who today disguises himself as a granny to try to fool European football,"

Tebas wrote on Twitter,

"but HIS nose and HIS teeth are very big.

"Four divisions in Europe? Of course the first for them, as in the 2019 reform. Government of the clubs? Of course only the big ones."

The LaLiga Corporativo Twitter account added: "The Super League is the wolf in the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

"It is disguising itself as an open and meritocratic competition, but underneath there is still the same selfish, elitist and greed driven project. Don't let their tales fool you."

Joan Laporta, who stands as a supporter of the competition, said on Thursday:

"It is progressing. It will be an attractive, sustainable competition, respectful of the health of the players.

"What we want is for the dialogue with UEFA not to break, and to harmonise with the national leagues. We must establish a deeper debate to coexist with the domestic leagues, as the Champions League coexists with the leagues.

"All to the point that the promoters of the Super League will have the right to organise competitions. It evolves. It is in progress.

"We are committed to the Super League project and to the sustainability of European football. We cannot compete with domestic clubs, nor with the Premier League, which allocates seven billion to the competition... there are comparative grievances.

"What commits us is the sustainability of football. We are three big clubs and we don't want to leave UEFA aside. It will be done in agreement with UEFA. We are not going through the path of rupture, we are going through the path of dialogue."

The Football Supporters Association responded:

"The walking corpse that is the European Super League twitches again with all the self-awareness one associates with a zombie.

"They say 'dialogue with fans and independent fan groups is essential' yet the European Zombie League marches on – wilfully ignorant to the contempt supporters across the continent have for it."
