Florentino Perez received another full dose of criticism over his involvement in the European Super League plans.
The Real Madrid president led the campaign to launch this new setup, considering the benefits of only the richest European clubs.
Former Barcelona player, Rivaldo told Betfair, “Real Madrid’s president is one of the main organisers and speakers in defence of the new league, but he only says what he says because is leading a powerful club like Madrid and is aware that he might generate more money in this Super League, but it’s a disrespect to other clubs in Spain like Sevilla or Valencia that often need UEFA money awards to get some extra income.
“He is creating a war with FIFA and UEFA and the organisations are considering banning some players from their competitions meaning that international teams might play the EURO’s or World Cups without some of their biggest stars because they play for some of those clubs involved in the new Super League.
“This might turn our football into a chaos and that’s why I refuse the possibility of this going ahead. There’s plenty of people against it including managers and players of the clubs involved which shows how controversial this proposed move is.
“For me, UEFA competitions are well organised and distribute enough money to help the clubs, but of course, some major clubs want more. Personally, I see this as a great disrespect for opponents, fans and all the football world.”
