Pep Guardiola Concerns Over Idea Of European Super League

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has raised doubts over the idea of Europe's top clubs breaking away from their domestic leagues to form a super league.

Officials from some of Europe's biggest teams have been discussing the idea of a breakaway to maximise potential television revenue and ensure they are no longer exposed to relegation and potential financial trouble. Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal were involved in a secret meeting to talk about the idea earlier this month but the mentioned clubs have denied.

Guardiola, who will leave the club to join Manchester City this summer, has raised concerns over what would happen to domestic leagues at such an event. He said “I don't have all the details about what's going on. It would be interesting but I don't know what would happen with the domestic leagues. I don't know what would happen to the Bundesliga without Bayern Munich, to the Spanish league without Barcelona or Real Madrid. The local leagues are so, so important for team spirit, and the cultural way. I also don't know if it would be good to make a competition without UEFA and FIFA altogether. But I don't have much information about this idea
