Would we see a European Super League in the future?
Is Arsène Wenger right? Would the big heavyweights of the continent be head to head every week? Before Arsenal’s game against Celtic, which they won 2-0, the Gunners boss believes that in ten years time we would see a new European League.
From a financial point of view, this may be an opportunity as the sum of money could be all too tempting for the likes of the men behind the scenes from the big four, not to mention clubs such as Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.
Manchester United say they are happy with the existing structure but other clubs, may be keen for the change. How would this system work? Wenger has an idea of how it might work; “Teams would have to play in both the European Super league in midweek and the national league at the weekend. It means all these teams have two teams.”
In 1998, their were discussions about a breakaway European Super League for Manchester United, Arsenal, AC Milan and Inter Milan, Juventus, Ajax, Paris St Germain, Marseille and Borussia Dortmund. Who knows how that could have turned out if it had become a reality?
Could this be just another ridiculous idea though? From what Wenger said, it doesn’t sound so promising, playing with your strong side in one competition and your second string in another. Just like the 39th game idea or the thought of Celtic and Rangers in the English League it shouldn’t be done. (Well that’s our opinion anyway, what do you think?)
