Former Italy star Roberto Baggio said ‘football needs change’ when asked about the Super League project, but stressed ‘we must never forget that it belongs to the people’.
The Super League project sent shockwaves throughout the world of football and fans across Europe protested the decision of the 12 founding clubs.
And the project collapsed in no time, but three clubs have remained attached to the project – as Real Madrid, Barcelona and Baggio’s former club Juventus won’t give up changing the game.
“I think football needs a change. It’s indisputable,” Baggio told Revista Libero when asked about the topic. “The speed with which the project collapsed, however, must make us think.
“To navigate towards new horizons, with new projects, we need capable men, with already consolidated experience.
“I would be disappointed if we missed the opportunity to build something necessary, because the world changes, people change and TV changes too.
“That said, in any process aimed at improving something existing, the only thing that matters is that it can benefit everyone and not just those who thought about it.
“We have to create a culture of sport, therefore also of football, but we must never forget that it belongs to the people.”
