Why La Liga won’t be banning Atletico

Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid

La Liga will not expel Atletico Madrid,

Barcelona and Real Madrid because they

consider the controversial Super League to be

‘dead on arrival’.

The recently announced Super League has

rocked football to the core, with fans all over

the world voicing their displeasure at the idea

of a closed-off rival competition to the UEFA

endorsed Champions League.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has

been announced as chairman of the league in

which 20 teams will take part, though 15 of

said teams will be classed as founder

members and will not face the risk of

demotion.

Alongside Perez’s Real Madrid, Barcelona and

Atletico Madrid make up the Spanish

contingent who’ve expressed a desire to join

the league and – despite the Premier League’s

condemnation of the plans following the

interest of six English sides – COPE report that

all three sides will not be expelled from their

domestic league despite wanting to participate

in the breakaway competition.

La Liga reportedly believe the concept was

‘born dead’ and therefore see no reason to

force such sanctions upon their biggest

players.

A whole host of punishments have already

been touted for players who participate in the

league, with expulsion from this season’s

Champions League as well as future UEFA and

FIFA events just one of them.

Perez moved to dispel such rumours when he

appeared on El Chiringuito TV on Monday

night, claiming the players have nothing to

worry about.

“The players should remain calm [after threats

from UEFA about being able to play in any

UEFA sanctioned competition] because the

threats won’t happen,” he said. “But those who

run the monopolies at UEFA have to be

transparent. UEFA doesn’t have a good image.

“They are not going to kick us, Manchester City

or Chelsea out of the Champions League, we’re

completely safe.”

Despite Perez’s attempt to settle the nerves of

the clubs and players involved, reports have

suggested that two English sides are already

close to ‘losing their nerve’ over the agreement.
