Watch: Milan president Scaroni backs Super League premise – “We cannot continue to lose money”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has stressed that the problems that gave rise to the European Super League still exist within football.

The world of football was rocked when 12 teams announced that they were part of a new breakaway competition that would essentially put the power in their hands, with Milan, Juventus and Inter among the teams involved. However, the project died within days as numerous clubs pulled out over fears of long-lasting repercussions for going behind the back of UEFA.

Scaroni gave an interview to Bloomberg TV in which he talked about the Super League and did not show too much remorse, instead doubling down on the idea that change is needed.

β€œThe problem is that the major European clubs are losing money, and despite this, they continue to invest in players to keep this fantastic sport at the top,” he said (via MilanNews).

β€œThe Super League project is to invent an identity, possibly together with UEFA, to solve the problem we are experiencing. The clubs do not want to leave UEFA. We cannot continue to lose money, and with Covid the situation has worsened. We must find a way to restore the economy of European clubs.”

    he is not wrong at all. but probably they should find some other way

    The football industry is completely crazy, that’s all. Clubs pay too much for transfers + player agent fees. Salaries are too high as well. If they reduce all that, they will win money again.

    Monopoly is never good for any industry. UEFA literally come out every year with their corruption scandals but still don’t make anything with it. Just wasting money clubs make for them. And thus they keep their FFP blind to PSG, City and other money wasting giants.
    I bet the idea of SuperLiga was to show UEFA that they should change.

    Even now Madrid is afraid to spend much because of FFP but PSG is signing everyone at costly prices but nothing is being done to them that unfair at the hands of uefa

    maybe they should treat super league as a friendly match. similar to friendly matches tournament in the pre season. so they won’t break away with UEFA.
