FIFA chief within the highlight as Tremendous League doc revealed
Although talks about a possible breakaway European Super League have subsided somewhat, the notion of competition is still on the table.
A revised UEFA Champions League could limit the ESL’s idea once and for all.
However, Spanish champions Javier Tebas have noted that FIFA chief Gianni Infantino is actively behind the opportunities a Super League would offer.
Infantino warned players in public that if they entered they would be banned from the World Cup and other tournaments, but behind the scenes it seems like a different matter.
“It is obvious that Gianni Infantino attended meetings and hosted the club organization to work on the Super League,” Tebas was quoted by The Sun as saying.
“He worked on it and even encouraged her to set it up.
“In the documents we have regarding the Super League there is a code name W01 mentioned which clearly refers to Mr. Infantino. That’s his code name.
“If I’m wrong, I will apologize. But we have information and the facts seem to be there. I think people are telling me the truth.
“The documents list certain dates that are withheld for the Club World Cup each January.
“Twelve European teams, the five best from each of the two groups, with four teams playing for the other two places.
“It is obvious that people helping Real Madrid would not provide this data if they did not know that Infantino had this information.
“He’s not against it. He thought the project was fine.
“Therefore, he should urgently clarify his personal position to explain exactly why he has attended some of the meetings and to support the project at certain times.”
