It does already some time that the organisers put hands to the work, but a leak in the last days revealed that the project of the Superliga European already is very advancedThe new competition could substitute to the Champions League in 2021, although they are not few those that warn that the consequences are not at all promising and that the initiative is convict to the failure.

Between his firmer detractores is Javier Thebes, president of LaLiga, that has ensured in several interviews that all that glitters is not gold and that there are several points that do wobbled to this tournament, that would not fit neither economic neither socially with the perspectives that the big clubs founders expect of him.

"Set it up would be the end of the leagues and of the Superliga", aims the leader, that already warns that it defines it with hardness so that all the world loan attention to his recommendations. "For my, the Superliga European is a project of bar of bar to the five of the morning created by a few presidents of big clubs", has sentenced.

"At the beginning it will seem lovely, but the fan of the Bayern Munich or of the Real Madrid has done big winning titles, winning his national competitions, because the history does like this. You think in a Real Madrid against Manchester United and on the paper is a partidazo, but clear, any will go the eleventh and another the tenth. To see how many fans remain in five years after this", has reflexionado, ensuring that in a "constellation" of big teams, there will be winning but also losing, something that will not be so easy to manage.

Thebes insists in his defence of the Champions because it considers it "a competition of excellence with a perfect model and that allows that the big clubs follow working his marks", but refuses with rotundity the new proposal because in addition to the arguments mentioned, could generate disequilibriums in the income that would finish repercutiendo on the domestic championships.

The big clubs have to unblock the project of the Superliga

It was or no the suitable form to value, what is clear is that the warning of Javier Thebes has to suppose a reflection. Like members founders, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Bayern of Munich, Juventus, Chelsea, Arsenal, PSG, Manchester City, Liverpool and Milan have to give him a turn to his councils, and define with total security if the parameters of planned operation are asumibles and would boost the competitiveness, the sustainability and the show.
