Through a press release, Frank McCourt, the owner of Olympique de Marseille, took a stand against the Super League: “As an American who has had the privilege of being a manager and owner of clubs on both continents. , I learned that the culture of sport in Europe is very different from that of the United States and that it must be respected. In Europe, the system is not based on the centralization of power and gratification in the hands of a few. Of course, we have to find a model that is sustainable and that requires changes. This is the effort undertaken by UEFA, which we support. Now is not the time to break this pattern. Now is the time to transform it while remaining true to the fundamental values ​​of European football culture. All of us,at the Olympique de Marseille, we are firmly opposed to the proposals made by some clubs to create a European Super League. ”
