Real Madrid and Barcelona are the only teams left in the Superleague after Juventus withdrew from the project earlier this year. Nonetheless, the two Spanish clubs are proceeding with this plan.
Still, Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi took the opportunity to take further shots at the so-far failed Superleague project. At a European Clubs Association event, Al-Khelaifi told Diario AS that the league was dead in the water.
“I call it the ‘No Super League’,” Al-Khelaifi told the Spanish outlet. “Nobody wants to do it. We don’t care what they do. They are on the outside. Before there were three teams, now there are two…”
After this summer’s remarkable investment, al-Khelaifi dismissed the idea that the Saudi Pro League could threaten European football. European football can rest easy until the league takes Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappé’s level players. Still, if that were to happen, it would be a cause for concern.
“I don’t think there is any danger,” Al-Khelaifi added. “We focus on Europe and our clubs. We have the best and most important competitions, the best players. It is not for me to judge what happens outside Europe. We focus on ourselves.”
The PSG club chief has been taking swipes recently as it didn’t stop at the two Spanish clubs and Saudi Arabia. Al-Khelaifi also took a subtle dig at Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. while promoting this new project under Luis Enrique.
