Claims surface Florentino Perez lied about PSG & Bayern Super League invitations as president says football will be saved by new project

ESL to “save football”

The president of the new Super League and Real Madrid, Florentino Perez, conducted an interview Monday evening in which he revealed that he believes the plans are in order to “save football.”

The Los Blancos figurehead claimed that interest in the sport was diminishing due to a lack of interesting fixtures.

“Whenever there is a change, there are always people who oppose it. We are doing this to save football at this critical moment,” he said.

“Audiences are decreasing and rights are decreasing and something had to be done. We are all ruined. Television has to change so we can adapt.

“Young people are no longer interested in football. Why not? Because there are a lot of poor quality games and they are not interested, they have other platforms on which to distract themselves.”

Claims Perez lied about Bayern Munich, Dortmund & PSG

Amongst the 12 original founders, there was no presence of PSG, Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund. Perez said that the trio had yet to be invited.

“PSG were not invited, as of today. We haven’t even spoken to German clubs. We are now 12 clubs, we want to become 15 clubs. If PSG and Bayern Munich refuse, the Super League won’t be cancelled,” he claimed.

However, this has seemingly been disproven and there are accusations this is a straight-up lie.

According to documents obtained by the notable investigative media outlet Der Spiegel, all three clubs have in fact been invited.

The German clubs have already come out and refused to take part.

Backlash grows
