Real president Florentino Perez said Monday night on Spanish television that the records of clubs engaged in the Super League would not be reset. For example, Real Madrid, winner of the C1 13 times, could thus claim 13 Super League.
Creating a new competition does not mean wiping out the past. Well in any case not on all fronts. Monday evening, Florentino Perez was the guest of the show El Chiringuito, broadcast on Spanish television, to explain the Super League project, unveiled the day before and of which he is one of the instigators.

The president of Real wanted to justify the creation of a closed league. According to him, the Super League would be the only solution to “save football”. Florentino Perez has also shown himself to be little affected by the threats brandished by UEFA, such as banning Super League players from the Euro and the World Cup, in an attempt to counter the project. But Florentino Perez also spoke on the list of 12 future teams involved (Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham, Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and therefore Real Madrid).
“We will always add the titles”
For him, out of the question that the counters are reset. If Real were to win this future European competition, it would be the 14th Merengue Super League. “We must win the 14th (Champions League) this year and it would therefore be the 15th,” even said the Spaniard in comments reported by Marca, thus showing himself very confident about a possible victory for his club in C1 this season.
Zinédine Zidane’s Real qualified for the semi-finals by exiting Liverpool and will face Chelsea for a place in the final (April 27 and May 5, on RMC Sport). Unless the earthquake caused by the Super League comes upset the schedule. “We will always add the titles”, insisted Florentino Perez before expanding on the case of his club: “We have 23 European Cups, football and basketball together. We are a sports city”, he said concluded.
