The Super League, which 12 luxury clubs in Europe tried to launch earlier this week, continues to provoke echoes and reactions.
Tonight (Thursday) after suffering harsh criticism from its fans, Barcelona announced that they are not retiring from the innovative league and issued an official announcement in an attempt to clarify where it stands.
"The board of the club accepted, out of urgency due to the economic situation, the offer to be a 'founding club' in the Super League - an enterprise whose purpose is to improve the attractiveness and quality of football," the Blaugrana captain wrote, "The decision was made "At the same time, Barcelona, as a club that has always belonged to its members, will act with the final approval of the fans. In light of the crowd reaction, Barcelona feel that the situation and the reasons for the protest need to be better analyzed."
Earlier in the day, Barça president Joan Laporta referred to this week's events, saying: "The big teams are contributing a lot and we need to be a significant part of the revenue dispute. We are open to discussion with UEFA, I think there will be an understanding.
It takes a little more resources to turn it all into a show. "
