Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid, is confident that the teams in the Super League will not be thrown out of the Champions League this season.

He also slammed the Champions League’s new structure, claiming that it is “only attractive from the quarter-finals” and that clubs “will all die” unless big changes are made.

Perez is a driving force behind the Super League initiative and has been appointed as its chairman.

“The Champions League is attractive from the quarterfinals, that’s all,” he told late-night Spanish talk show El Chiringuito.

“We play against small teams that aren’t attractive. Young people prefer to entertain themselves with other things. But if we do it all season, five games on Tuesday, five on Wednesday, that would be unstoppable.

“What would bring in money is the 15 clubs playing each other every week. That’s the greatest show in the world, there’s nothing like it,” he added. “A Real Madrid-Manchester [United] or a Barcelona-Milan is more attractive than Manchester [United] against a small club.

“What does the world demand? We have fans in Singapore, in China, all around the world, you see that on social media, the followers they have. That’s what brings in money.”

12 clubs – AC Milan, Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Internazionale, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur – have joined the ESL as founding members.
