"It is a living project. The three clubs that defend it continue to win everything in the courts. UEFA cannot prevent it. What happens is that it could have been presented better. We have Agnelli in the middle; who knows what he is doing."Barcelona President on the future of the European Super League

What is next for the Super League and UEFA

Paris Saint Germain was not one of the clubs to join the Super League. And their president Nasser al-Khelaifi didn't hold back when speaking on the league. In his first major speech as the head of the European Clubs Association.

"I will not spend much time talking about 18 April. And the 'not-so-Super League.' Because I do not like to focus on fabulists and failures. Together we defended the interests of European football for everyone. We relied on the resolve and strength of [Uefa] president [Aleksander Ceferin], who stood up to the midnight coup. He said 'we will win' and we did."PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi on the Super League

Barcelona's determination to make the European Super League a reality is due to its severe financial struggles. The plans may have hit a roadblock. But with the power of Barcelona, Real Madrid & Juventus are still behind the plans. The European Super League will soon become a reality.
