He wrote on his official Twitter page, “The decision by Chelsea and Manchester City – if confirmed – is absolutely correct and I applaud them for that. I hope other clubs involved in the European Super League will follow it as well.” “
Earlier, in a news conference, he said that the United Kingdom is against the Super League, and “will clearly support the football authorities”.

In a statement, the FA was emphatic, stating that it was a disapproval of the creation of the tournament.
“We received news that some clubs have decided to drop plans for the European Super League, threatening the entire football pyramid. English football has a proud history of opportunities for all clubs and the game is unanimous in its rejection of a closed league There was a proposal that could divide our game, but instead, it unites all of us ”, says the text.
“We would like to thank the fans during that time, especially for their impressive and outspoken voice, maintaining the principles that guided football. It is a powerful reminder that the game is, and always will be, for the fans. ”
