The concept of a European Super League was first proposed in 2021, when the continent’s biggest and strongest clubs announced ambitions to leave UEFA competition to join a closed-off rival league.
The teams engaged in the competition withdrew their support after major objections from supporters, particularly those in England – however Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus have stayed loyal to the concept because they believe European football is in desperate need of financial change.
Bernd Reichart, the CEO of A22 Sports, the business behind the European Super League, recently presented a new ten-point plan aimed at revitalizing the concept, with up to 80 teams potentially participating in a merit-based tournament.
Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has already declared his support for a European Super League, and Kroos has indicated that breaking away from UEFA-led competition may not be such a bad thing after all.
“I believe the Super League will be seen. “And I believe so for a number of reasons,” Kroos remarked on the Einfach mal Luppen program.
“The Super League concept has evolved and needs to be heard. If you examine closely from both perspectives, you will notice that UEFA is far from a good Samaritan for football fans, and that the Super League has no plans to reject any team, at least not in the second attempt, because there will be no permanent founding members.
“It is a sporting competition, an open event, but governed by the clubs and not by UEFA, because these clubs believe that they do not need UEFA for that. “I believe this merits at least one shot.”
Kroos then used the example of tennis greats Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal repeatedly going toe-to-toe in Grand Slam finals to demonstrate how fans appreciate witnessing the greatest compete with one another over and over.
“While we have already talked about the loss of passion for football, I feel that the Super League has the capacity to rectify that scenario. Allow for greater energy and emotion in the games that we will be able to witness.
“So, let us not kid ourselves, many people always say: ‘Who wants to watch Real Madrid play Manchester City every week?'” But have you grown weary of seeing Federer vs. Nadal over and over? I don’t. That is my personal opinion.”
Kroos speaks from experience, having played at the highest level for many years. He is one of the most accomplished footballers of the contemporary period, having won the Champions League five times, once with Bayern Munich and four times with Real Madrid.
