The Italian was talking about the league and the top six Premier League sides which had joined it
Although the Super League is now on its last limbs after a slew of the competition’s founding members backed out of it, the ramifications the league’s inception has left are colossal.
The idea and decision to forage the Super League has seen football supporters across the global stage be left disgusted and disgruntled. People have been bereaved at the insatiable greed and hunger of club owners with many lambasting the decision of the twelve sides.
This outburst saw all six Premier League sides decide to withdraw within only a couple of days after the formation of the league. And one of these teams was Arsenal, Everton’s impending challengers in the Premier League.
Ancelotti Bemused By The Super League
Carlo Ancelotti, Everton’s a manger spoke ahead of the encounter and talked about how he was left flabbergasted with the concept of the Super League.
“My immediate reaction was they are joking, ‘Is it a joke?’,” he said.
“They wanted to build a competition without sporting merit. This is not acceptable because in our culture, we were brought up to have sporting merit. They were wrong – full stop.
“I think that the Super League as they proposed it is impossible, but a new way of Champions League I think.
“I think in 2024 there will be a new format for the Champions League and on there I think that they can talk and find the best solution to have this competition more and more exciting and competitive.”
While Ancelotti’s Super League comments resonated with football supporters, his support of the Champions League changing its format hasn’t gone down too well. Many have been quick to lament UEFA”s decision of a 100 match tournament come 2024, a move which is akin to the Super League’s motive of grabbing money.
Everton’s forthcoming matchup meanwhile is slated to be marred by calamitous protests. Arsenal supporters are set to hit the ground to show their angst against Stan Kroenke.
