Borussia supports C1 reform
Among the UEFA loyalists, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain serve as leaders. But other teams, like Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, could also be approached to be part of the Super League project. The two Bundesliga clubs on Monday reaffirmed their lack of interest in this new competition.
In a statement issued in the morning, Hans-Joachim Watzke, boss of Borussia, reaffirmed his support for the ECA. “The ECA board met online on Sunday evening at a meeting in which Friday’s decision was upheld. (…) This decision wants all clubs to want to implement place reform of the Champions League, “writes Watzke in this statement.
Bayern and Dortmund agree “100%”
The Dortmund manager also says that “the two German clubs represented on the ECA board, Bayern Munich and Borussia, presented 100% identical views in all discussions.” BVB would therefore have no intention of joining the Super League project, even if it does see the light of day.
Same story on the Leipzig side. Semi-finalist of the last edition of the Champions League, eliminated by PSG, the RBL would not be interested in a participation in the Super League, as affirmed the very serious Fabrizio Romano, who saw his information confirmed by Sky Deutschland.
