Super League deserves a chance: Kroos
Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos believes that the European Super League is a project worth trying.
Kroos has won the Champions League five times – once with Bayern Munich and on four occasions with Real – but he thinks a Super League could be good for European soccer.
Speaking on his podcast, Einfach mal Luppen, Kroos said this week: "I think we will see the Super League. I believe so for several reasons.
"If you look carefully from both angles, you will see that UEFA is by no means a great Samaritan for football fans and that the Super League has no plans, at least in the second attempt, to exclude any team, because there will be no permanent founding members.
"It is a sports competition, an open tournament, but managed by the clubs and not by UEFA, because these clubs believe that they do not need UEFA for that. I think this deserves at least one chance," Kroos added.
The original Super League proposal was announced in April 2021 but failed to take off after heavy protests from fans, especially in England.
But a new plan is in the works, one that would be based on sporting performance, rather than having permutant members.
