In a very welcome change of events, the European Super League seems to have fallen apart in the span of the last hour or so. It started with protests outside Stamford Bridge which kick-started a domino effect, with Manchester City pulling out as well. In addition to the same, Barcelona have decided to put the European Super League after an official statement from the members.
The best part, for Barcelona fans anyway, will be the report by Telegraph. Their report states that Real Madrid will be banned from European Competitions as long as Florentino Perez remains in charge of the club as a penalty.
Perez has been the mastermind behind this grand, hugely corrupt European Super League plans, and even threw other clubs under the bus yesterday in his interview. In addition to the same, he claimed that Joan Laporta and Barcelona were quick to agree on the move, which has since been put under a huge red light.
What is particularly interesting is that Perez was appointed president of Real Madrid as recently as last week through automatic procedures after the club failed to come up with competition for him in the race. He might have to step down soon, though, if this punishment goes through. For a club of the status of Real Madrid, winners of the Champions League 13 times, they cannot afford to miss out on a spot in Europe because of the greed of one incompetent president.
