During the turmoil of the Super League, UEFA showed itself as a company that cared about fans and small clubs. Of course, in a sense, this is due to various solidarity mechanisms. But this is mainly a public relations game, an attempt to whitewash a group of frustrated fugitives who are trying to break away from contact to create the Super League. From 2024, we will see a brand new and reformed UEFA Champions League, the Light Super League. The main difference is that sports considerations will still largely determine eligibility for the tournament, but in general, this idea is to allow the rich to enter the cash register further from the European Cup. You can read more in this article by Jakub Kręcidła, a journalist from Sport.pl. However, not everyone likes UEFA President Alexander Seferin’s PR game.
-Considering all the turbulence in the Super League… can we talk about the new Champions League format with more games? Does anyone think of us-football players? Isn’t the new Champions League format so evil compared to the Super League? -Ilkay Gundogan wrote on Twitter. He added:-The current LM formula works very well. This is why it is the most popular club game for fans and players.
The coronavirus pandemic has allowed us to witness the fiercest football match of the 21st century. Until August, many teams ended the 2019/20 season, and the new season starts in September. When the European League ends, the leading players will enter the 2021 European Cup. But this is not over yet. The euro will end and the next season will begin, followed by the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The players are on the verge of exhaustion. Let’s take a look at Manchester City competing in the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and English League Cup.
By mid-April, midfielder Gundogan had won 39 games (2,858 minutes). In addition, there is a German team. Since November 2020, he has played 6 games in the German team. But in Manchester, there are those people whose legs are getting bigger and bigger. Rodri, also a Manchester midfielder, does not count his number of appearances in the Spanish national team. He has played 46 games on the counter, which is equivalent to 3,500 minutes! Their coach, Pep Guardiola, thought he was ill.
-These are people, not machines! Football players may be angry because they want to play every day, but this is impossible. We are playing the shortest season ever. If it weren’t for the rotation of the team, we wouldn’t be what we are now. My players have an amazing mentality, but they need to rest. UEFA and FIFA are killing players! Too much! Since the beginning of this season, we have not had a holiday. No player can stand it. Physically and mentally, Guardiola was furious on Goal.com two weeks ago.
