youThe EFA remains open for reception Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus in the inner circle of European football.
Alexandre Ceferinchairman of European football’s governing body, opened the door to the three clubs who remain committed to the idea of a European Super League and extended his hand to them.
“I haven’t heard of them” Ceferin said when asked about the three clubs in an interview with Journal du Dimanche.
“But I have no problem with them. They each have a lot of great traditions and deserve respect. If they asked for a meeting, I would sit down and talk with them.”
Three flat ground outlets
Ceferin reiterated that the Super League is a dead project, although the three clubs still persevere in their aim to have a continental competition outside the UEFA umbrella.
“After they stabbed me and UEFA, I think it’s up to them to call” Ceferin noted.
“The same way the earth is flat, they still think the Super League exists.
“At the same time, they were the first to sign up to play in the Champions League this season. A bit strange.
“But the only things we hear from them are lawsuits which have no place. They are trying to pressure everywhere.
“No one wants [the Super League] except the few who think football is about money.”
President of the Spanish Football Federation Luis Rubiales He had previously sought to meet with the three clubs to resolve issues that arose after a failed attempt to form a breakaway European league last year, and now Ceferin himself appears keen to rebuild the bridges that have been burned.
