Paris Saint-Germain CEO Takes a Swipe at Lingering Superleague Project

During the international break, the ongoing exchanges between prominent figures in European football continue, with Paris Saint-Germain CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi using the opportunity to criticize the still-unrealized Superleague project.

As it stands, Real Madrid and Barcelona are the only remaining clubs associated with the Superleague, following Juventus’ departure from the initiative earlier this year. Despite the reduced participation, A23, the organization behind the league, along with Barcelona and Real Madrid, maintain their commitment to the project.

Speaking at an event organized by the European Clubs Association, Al-Khelaifi humorously referred to the Superleague as the “No Super League.”

“We don’t care what they do. They are on the outside. Before there were three teams, now there are two…”

Al-Khelaifi also downplayed the notion that the Saudi Pro League poses a threat to European football, despite significant investments made during the summer.

“I don’t think there is any danger. We focus on Europe and our clubs. We have the best and most important competitions, the best players. It is not for me to judge what happens outside Europe. We focus on ourselves.”

It’s important to note that the PSG CEO has strong ties to Qatar, his home country, and Qatar, the host of the 2022 World Cup, maintains a political and regional rivalry with Saudi Arabia.

Last year, during the general assemblies of Real Madrid and Barcelona, Florentino Perez and Joan Laporta respectively championed the Superleague as the solution to various issues in football. However, there has been limited public commentary on the project since then.
