AS Roma denies Barcelona President Joan Laporta’s European Super League claim

AS Roma is one of the most historic Italian clubs, but in recent times, it has lost its significance. With the emergence of new clubs gunning it for glory, the old historic clubs have been losing their prominence, and that has affected the Italian club as well.

The Rome-based club, which has won 17 major trophies in its rich history, has been on the verge of decline ever since the start of the century, owing to a change in system dynamics. But despite all of that, the club management has come to refuse to join the Super League, which could have given them a much-needed financial boost.

AS Roma refutes joining the Super League

The 22/23 Europa League runner-ups have refused to join the Super League, which has gotten pace and backing in recent times after the ruling of the European Court of Justice in favor. In their official statement published on their website, they expressed their full commitment to FIFA and UEFA and refused any discussions about joining the Super League.

“As publicly reiterated a few hours after the ruling of the European Court of Justice on the Super League case, AS Roma confirms that it does not support in any way any type of project attributable to the so-called Super League.”

“The Club also specifies that it has never revised its position on the matter, nor has it held discussions useful for undertaking a path other than the joint one of the clubs through the ECA, in close collaboration with UEFA and FIFA.”

Joan Laporta names clubs agreed to join the Super League

The two Spanish Supergiants—Barcelona and Real Madrid—have for the first time come together to do something that could change the dynamics of modern football. Being the only two remaining founding club members of the Super League after the other club left the project due to the threat of UEFA, both teams are set to receive massive financial boosts after the inauguration of the Super League, which could easily clear their financial troubles.

Thus, Barcelona President Joan Laporta came out to reveal the plans of the Super League and the clubs that have already agreed to join them in this football revolution. The president revealed that all the La Liga clubs have already agreed to join them except for Atletic Madrid. Along with big European clubs like Inter, Milan, Napoli, Roma, Olympique Marseille, Benfica, Porto, Sporting, Ajax, Feyenoord, PSV, Anderlecht, and Club Brugge, the project is going to be superhit and will be influential in global football.

In times of unfair backing of many clubs by Saudi money, the Super League comes out to provide a fair financial platform and has also promised free broadcasting of all matches around the world for fans which has helped the project gain recognition.

It would be interesting to keep an eye out for the development of the project and how it goes into effect. Do you think the Super League can be a success? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
