JUST IN: Fifa President Finally Breaks Silence On Super League Project (VIDEO)


Fifa president Gianni Infantino has finally spoken out about the European Super League initiative, which is causing havoc in the world of football.

The proposed super league project is about to transform football into a whole new sport, as it places a premium on top European clubs while rendering smaller clubs powerless.

Speaking today at the Fifa offices, Infantino has come out to firmly announce that they will not approve this new formation which is clearly a breakaway from the current circumstances.

"At FIFA, we can only and categorically reject the creation of The Super League, a Super League that is a closed shop and a breakaway from existing institutions."

Fifa, Infantino stressed, is an organization founded on the true principles of football, which it would defend at all costs rather than giving way to a new league whose sole purpose is to make money for a select few clubs.

The debate about whether to adapt to this new project or disband it is far from over, and we'll have to wait and see what happens first on Friday when UEFA has agreed to bar the teams involved in this project from participating in the Champions League.
