Rome – The governments of Spain, Italy and the UK have not seen any plans for a Super League in European football. The 12 participating clubs include six from England, three from Italy and three from Spain, so they do not have to rely on any support in their country for their main competitions, as a total of twenty clubs are expected to start this year .
“We are closely following the ongoing debate over the project,” said pro-Roma Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi. “The government strongly supports the position of Italian and European football officials to protect the national championships, values and social benefits of the game.”
In Spain, the Sports Minister held an emergency meeting on Monday with leaders of the Spanish Football Association, La Liga and three clubs: Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético Madrid. The government later said: “We do not support the Premier League.” The cabinet said that the leaders of the three clubs are open to discuss the matter.
Earlier, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had strongly condemned the Premier League’s plans. “It goes to the heart of national football. Affected clubs must be accountable to their fans and the entire football community before taking any action. The Europa League plans are very destructive and we support the football authorities in taking necessary measures.
