The European Super League general secretary, Anas Laghrari has come out to defend the competition. He recently revealed that the best players in the world will actually love the chance to regularly play against each other.
According to him, the competition is trying to create a platform for the best football in the world, and he is sure the fans will also want to see such.
He added that the younger generations are less interested in football nowadays, so more interesting competitions are needed to trigger them to rediscover that interest.
His words, “We want to create [a platform for] the best football. A competition that everyone wants to see, that makes people dream.”
“The younger generations are less interested in football, they focus on playing on their console or whatever and only log in for the big games. But these big games rarely happen.”
“There is also a frustration among players who want to play these big games against these great players. Neymar dreamed of playing against [Lionel] Messi.”
“He was injured [in the 2020-21 Champions League round of 16] and maybe will not ever be able to play against Messi again.”
“We are ready to sit around a table [with UEFA], we only ask for a dialogue. In case of disagreement? Everything could start in five months.”
