Real Madrid – La Liga Juventus president is chairman of the ECA
Florentino Perez travelled to Turin on Monday to meet with Andrea Agnelli, Juventus president and chairman of the European Club Association.
The visit comes after Agnelli sent an invitation to the Real Madrid president, inviting him to visit Juventus’ facilities and to talk about all things surrounding football at the moment, more than likely including the topic of a European Super League.
The idea of a Super League is one that appeals to Florentino, which he has made no secret of.
“You have to innovate, look for ideas so that football remains appealing,” Perez said during Real Madrid‘s assembly.
“The current model needs a boost, COVID-19 has shown that. It needs new impetus and Real Madrid will be there.
“There is saturation, and the fans, the most important thing, are suffering. There are consequences for the players too.
“Football’s reform shouldn’t wait. We have to change. Europe’s big teams have millions of fans and we cannot turn our backs on them.”
