ECA: Al-Khelafi attacks Real Madrid
On the occasion of the assembly of the European Club Association (ECA), its president Nasser Al-Khelafi attacked Real Madrid. The leader of PSG regrets that Madrid, the main founders of the European Super League project, are celebrating their last crown in the Champions League.
Al-Khelafi is the president of PSG and ECA.
Almost a year and a half ago, several clubs were trying to set up a European Super League to compete with the legendary Champions League. This project did not ultimately see the light of day but continues today to fuel the debates. Nasser Al-Khelafi has not forgotten.
The president of Paris Saint-Germain, who has never supported this initiative, slipped a small tackle to Real Madrid during the assembly of the European Club Association (ECA), of which he is also the president. It’s strange that Real Madrid celebrates winning the Champions League, which is the biggest club competition in the world quipped the leader, in reference to the crowning of Madrid during the last edition of the C1 (1-0 victory against Liverpool in the final).
N. Al-Khelafi – i think it’s very weird
As a reminder, Real Madrid, through its president Florentino Prez, was one of the leading clubs in the European Super League project, along with FC Barcelona and Juventus Turin. It’s very strange to go against a fantastic club competition that already exists, but to participate, celebrate and enjoy the titles, « NAK » insisted. I think that’s very weird, to be honest. But we’re not going to waste time on that and we’re going to keep working.
