Leandro Paredes, Argentinian PSG midfielder, expressed his opposition to the Super League, in an interview with the media of Boca Juniors, his former club on Tuesday. He thus joins the position of Ander Herrera, the first player from the capital club to have expressed his disapproval.
He is the second Paris Saint-Germain player to take a position in the Super League. Although his statement is terse, Leandro Paredes said on Tuesday that he was opposed to the project of a semi-closed European competition.
“I did not read much what he said to himself, but we talked a little about it with the teammates. I just hope that it does not happen,” said the Argentinian midfielder, in an interview for Boca Juniors, his training club.
“We all think more or less the same thing. We hope it doesn’t happen. It would be a sin,” said Leandro Paredes.
Herrera also disapproves
Before him, Ander Herrera also expressed, on Monday, his opposition to this project: “I fell in love with popular football, with fan football, and with the dream of seeing the club of my heart face the best, launched the Basque midfielder from Paris in a message posted on social networks on Monday. If this European Super League happens, those dreams are over.
Long cited as part of the discussions of the Super League, Paris Saint-Germain is not among the twelve founding clubs of the competition. Its president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi thus reaffirmed his attachment to UEFA and the Champions League.
