Kroos insists the Super League is inevitable amid UEFA's corruption

After the initial backlash for the Super League, a new competition was proposed that will see 60-80 teams involved in a multi-divisional format. Slamming on UEFA, the Real Madrid midfielder believes the emergence of the Super League is inevitable.

The European Super League was launched in 2021 but failed to materialize after protests against it. 12 teams announced they will join the competition, but later 9 teams decided to leave Super League due to backlash from fans.

Real Madrid

, Barcelona, and Juventus are still supporting this project. A22 Sports Management says a new-look and open European Super League could contain up to 80 teams in a multi-divisional format.

Toni Kroos

told his latest podcast

Einfach mal Luppen

about the issue:

“I think we will see the Super League. And I believe so for several reasons. The idea of the Super League has changed and deserves to be heard. If you look carefully from both angles, you will see that UEFA is by no means a great Samaritan for football fans and that the Super League has no plans, at least in the second attempt, to exclude any team, because there will be no permanent founding members. It is a sports competition, an open tournament, but managed by the clubs and not by UEFA, because these clubs believe that they do not need UEFA for that. I think this deserves at least one chance.

"Although we have already talked about the loss of passion for football, I believe that the Super League has the opportunity to reverse that situation. Let there be more enthusiasm and emotion for the games that we will be able to see. Because in the end, let’s not fool ourselves, many people always say: ‘Who wants to see Real Madrid against Manchester City every week?’ But have you gotten tired of watching Federer against Nadal over and over again? I don’t. That’s my opinion."

Kroos further criticized UEFA for introducing the Nations League, he added:

“I think we have only heard the UEFA side, and too often in my opinion. Why is it OK for UEFA to introduce a Nations League that no one needs? Suddenly no one asks them about it. That’s why I think it’s incredibly important to listen to other proposals like the Super League. I get the feeling that we are no longer being listened to.”
