Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane​ spoke this Tuesday on the Superliga European in press conference. In the case of the trainer of the Real Madrid, preferred no 'wet' and did not want to give his opinion on this new project led by Florentino Pérez, but the Catalan yes took split. The technician of the Manchester City left clear that is not in favour of a competition in which they do not reward the results, further of who go out champion.

"The sport is not sport when the relation between effort and success does not exist", began the one of Santpedor, that recognised that the essence of the football like sport would lose in case to confirm the enclosed league that would suppose this tournament. "Have little information, but is not sport if it does not matter to lose. It is not just if a team struggles and fight and afterwards can not classify because the success only is guaranteeed for some clubs", aimed.

However, it recognised that it always will support the decisions of his club in spite of not agreeing with they. Besides, it admitted that his position and the one of the rest of trainers of the English groups involved is delicate. "Support to my club, know to his directors and seat me part, but also have my own opinion. I can give them my opinion on what know, but is an uncomfortable posture for the 'managers' of the six English teams involved because we do not have all the information", affirmed.

Also it argued Guardiola on the meritocracia by the have chosen the clubs that will participate and launched a 'dart' to the UEFA by the bad that has worked these years. "The Ajax has four or five Champions... And it will not be? Each club defends his position, but have to clear us all this. The Premier and the UEFA also defend his interests... And the UEFA also has failed", indicated.

To finish, the trainer of the City launched a message of patience to his fans and to the world of the football, since for the moment the Superliga is in diapers. For Pep, the most important is to centre in what it subtracts of Champions League and in the League of Champions of the course that comes. "The Superliga is an embryo that still does not breathe, that is the reality. Next week we will play the Champions and will try to arrive to the final. The next season also will play in Europe because we have won it to us", stood out.

Zidane no 'wetted' on the Superliga

On the other hand, Zidane left in hands of his president the subject of the Superliga and saved his opinion for him. "It is a question of a person, of the president. Each one has his opinion, but I am slope of the party, nor am to speak of this. It is not my work. My opinion on the Superliga do not go it to give. Of Zidane can say that never it wets , but is the truth, my work is what do. The rest can say, think, but does not serve of at all", finalised.
