Arsene Wenger faults proposed European Super League, gives reasons


Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken against the proposed European Super League which is being worked out for the 2022 kickoff.

English Premier League outfits Liverpool and Man United are believed to be frontiers in the new development which already has the backing of the world football governing body.

So far, the European Super League is gaining momentum and has received the backing of the American Bank JP Morgan with about $6 billion and that means there is no stopping of it.

Foam Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is now a FIFA staff has expressed his dissatisfaction with the development, arguing that all advantages benefitted by the Premier League will no longer be in place.

“The Premier League has a superiority. Project Big Picture wanted to reinforce this superiority. The other leagues try to destroy the advantage of the Premier League”

He expressed fears that the European League could be the plan of other leagues to frustrate the Premier League because of the advantages they will no longer benefit.

Arsene Wenger also revealed that the only reason why the frontiers of this initiative are getting down with it is because of the financial benefits they will enjoy as investors.

However, North London outfit Arsenal and the manager have not come out clear on their opinion of the development as it is claimed that they are being invited to be a part of it.

Manager Mikel Arteta has refused to give a stand on the matter, stating that the final format is yet to be known but expects something concrete very soon. He, therefore, called on the unity of all to be able to find the right solutions.

Meanwhile, the league is proposed to kick-start sometime in 2022 with 18 top European teams, including Barcelona and Real Madrid expected to be part of it.
