Lately, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi is more offensive.
After attacking FC Barcelona and its debt of 1.8 billion euros, the president of Paris Saint-Germain, who is also that of the European Club Association (ECA), addressed a small tackle to the other Spanish giant, Real Madrid.
A year and a half or so after the rebellion of twelve major European clubs, which had embarked on an attempt to create a new competition, the Super League, it returned to the carpet in the mouth of the leader.
During the assembly of the ECA, the latter described as "strange" the fact of seeing the Madrid club, crowned last May for the fourteenth time in its history, celebrating a Champions League from which it wishes to deviate. a few months earlier.
“We are not going to waste time on this”
"It's very strange to go against a fantastic club competition that already exists, but to participate, celebrate and enjoy the titles, quipped Al-Khelaïfi, demonstrating that this Champions League-Super League war has left its mark.
I think it's very weird, to be honest.
But we're not going to waste time on this and we're going to keep working.
Al-Khelaïfi: “It's Strange that Real Madrid celebrate winning the Champions League.
It's very strange that you go against the competition, but participate & celebrate winning the title.”

The ECA boss still seems to have little taste for Real Madrid's desire to defect from the C1.
Under the impetus of their president Florentino Perez, the people of Madrid had endorsed - in the company of Juventus Turin of Andrea Agnelli - the costume of the leading club in the Super League project, quickly nipped in the bud.
