Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, has insisted that no team has left the European Super League yet.
In an interview with El Larguero, Perez made it clear that anyone who thinks the project is dead is “completely wrong”.
Perez, who is also the president of the Super League, was speaking 24 hours after the controversial breakaway project collapsed.
According to him, the 12 founding members have not left yet as they all signed a legally “binding contract”.
He said: “I am a bit sad, disappointed. We have been working three years on this project, on fighting the current financial situation in Spanish football. It is easy to understand – you cannot touch La Liga, so you look for more money midweek.
“The leagues are sacred. What we can change is the midweek games. The Champions League is obsolete – it’s only interesting from the quarter-finals onwards.
“Among the 12 teams we lost €650million last season. This season two or three more times. This format clearly does not work.”
