A news has completely shaken the world of football. In the European early morning of Monday, 12 clubs jointly announced the creation of the European Super League, an international competition that will be contested by a select group of founding teams and 5 remaining teams that will access it according to their respective performances in the local leagues.
Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atlético de Madrid, Inter de Milan, Milan y Juventus There are 12 founding clubs that will participate without fail in each of the editions from its implementation (it could be in August of this year) onwards.
The UEFA, who feels more unauthorized than ever, he had to go out to the crossing to show his authority. In a ‘counter-statement’ published earlier, the federation that hosts the UEFA Champions League and the main leagues on the continent, was decisive and assured that “They will remain united in their efforts to stop this false project, a project that is based on the self-interest of a few clubs at a time when society needs solidarity more than ever.”
In addition, the entity quoted the words of FIFA and was decisive: “As announced by FIFA and the six federations, the clubs in question will not be able to play in any other competition at national, European or world level, and their players could be deprived of the opportunity to represent their national teams. “
While there is already talk of massive disaffiliations or even a possible suspension from the UEFA Champions League, in Argentina they are beginning to think about the last point of the previous paragraph. Could Lionel Messi be left without his last World Cup in case his team finally ends up being part of the tournament?

Leo He had his first World Cup event in 2006, when José Pékerman took him in and was already one of the most promising figures in football. His team fell to Germany in the quarterfinals and his image sitting on the substitute bench toured the planet. On 2010, with Diego Maradona as DT, the same result was repeated against the same rival but in South Africa. With Alejandro Sabella, in 2014 he showed his best version with the albiceleste and reached the end, falling for the third time in a row against the Germans. In Russia, an improvised selection ended up being eliminated against France, the future champion.
