Ex-Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has come out to say that the European Super League is a bad idea. Wenger recently revealed that he expects the plan to not go far because it disrupts the unity of the game.
According to him, football staying united is the most important thing of all, so the organisers should respect the history that has been built from European football.
He added that Arsenal supporting the movement will not stop him from speaking against it.
His words, “I would say that’s a bad idea. Football has to stay united, it’s the most important thing.”
“It’s based on sporting merit and overall to respect the history that has been built from European football.”
“I believe, personally, that this idea will not go far.”
“I don’t know what exactly is behind (it). There is a more dangerous idea behind it and it’s a big threat for the Premier League.”
“When I was still in charge it was a lot going on from other countries to diminish the dominance of the Premier League and a project like that would certainly accelerate that.”
On Arsenal also joining, “I don’t know what’s going on but that doesn’t change what I think. I believe for me, the most important, is to keep unity in the game and that football is played the same all over the world and that it’s inside one organisation.”
“I think it was a strength as football was the most popular sport in the world and this was one of the reasons.”
“Absolutely we have to fight to keep football simple, understandable and based on merit and everybody has the same chance and dream to be successful.”
