  1. So who’s still in this β€˜super’ league?
    Unreal Madrid.
    Inter, Juvenile and AC.

    No thanks. I’ll stick to the Champions League. 5 spots just opened up for CSKA Moscow, Galatasaray, Celtic, Feynoord and Red Star.

  2. i think florentino perez panicked brcause he saw he didn't gave the cash to buy mbappe and the king is not saving gis finance anymore so he had a genius idea…….

  3. Are the fans of the six premier league teams that originally signed up but pulled out gonna hold a grudge about them wanting to leave in the first place?

  4. You are the clown here . Fifa is one of the most corrupt organisation. They don't care about football but the fact that money would go to big ESL. You are afraid of not being able to get your salary if you object.Nobody is going to watch a UCL match between Eiber and Burnley ofc.

  5. The amount of hypocrisy is beyond me, the super league might have been presented horribly and might not be the answer, and all this pundits and ex players talking about the tradition and doing for the fans can go suck a d*ck, no one and I mean no one that's involved in professional football give two shits about the fans but the money they can get from them.

  6. Some fans really don't understand it well. They just pumped what UEFA is trying to fool. UEFA doesn't care about fans or football. They only care about how much money they can make. It's playing monopoly for the last 6 decades.

  7. Just HAD to be the Real Madrid man 🀣🀣 he’s a perfect rep for the fan base over there as well… full of themselves and just straight up clowns sometimes 🀣🀌🏽
