The European Super League would open up the possibility of seeing great teams like Juventus and Barcelona face off more than once every year.

The world of football has been shaken by the announcement of the creation of a European Super League.

Most think it is a bad idea, from the governing bodies FIFA and UEFA to national bodies such as the English Premier League or the Royal Spanish Football Federation.

The same goes for the fan groups of the six English clubs that make up half of the initial 12 members of the Super League: Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea y Arsenal from England.

The other six are the Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid, in Spain; Y Juventus, AC Milan and Inter, in Italy.
