Barcelona’s president implicates Liverpool Man Utd as “real founders” of Super League.

Barcelona director Joan Laporta has cited Liverpool and Manchester United of being the two clubs behind the abandoned European Super League.

Twelve of Europe’s biggest clubs, including six English sides, shocked the footballing world after their projects for a breakaway competition.

Months of preparation behind the scenes had gone into making this feasible, but the project failed just 48 hours after being proclaimed.

One by one, each club involved began to back out having suffered major criticism.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus are the only three sides yet to formally withdraw from the European Super League and still have aspirations that the ESL will ultimately be formed.

After declining to back down on their plans, they are seen as the ringleaders of the project – something Barcelona chief Laporta opposes of.


“Liverpool and United were the real founders of the Super League,” he said in an interview with Spanish outlet La Vanguardia.
“UEFA threatened and was demagogic. The clubs have still not paid the compensation for leaving.

“The Super League project is alive. It will be the most attractive competition in the world, and it will be based on meritocracy and solidarity.”

Barcelona’s wish to be part of such a league was explicit from the start, with the La Liga titans known to be in enormous financial debt.

The Super League would have awarded gainful sums of money to all 12 clubs, which would have gone some way to reducing problems faced by the Spanish side.

Laporta, who was chosen Barcelona’s club president in March, revealed that the club finds itself in a critical place as a result of handing out mega-money deals to various players.

“The club is worse than I expected, and I expected it to be in a difficult situation,” he said.

“There are some contracts that greatly limit us. There are things that will have to be explained and I won’t rule out any measures.

“Everything will be explained, because otherwise we would be accomplices. The same people always appear in the contracts.

“We have found ourselves with a squad with out-of-date salaries and we will have to juggle.

“Existing contracts can be changed or restructured, and then there are drastic measures that we would like not to have to take. Nothing is ruled out for the good of Barcelona.

“Between salaries and amortisations we have a figure of 650 million, which is more than the club’s income. These salaries are out of date.”
