“Football Remains the Loser” – Bayern Fans Slam Super League Idea vs Benfica

“Football Remains the Loser” – Bayern Fans Slam Super League Idea vs Benfica

Bayern Munich fans have spoken out against the controversial idea to create a European Super League during their Champions League match with Benfica tonight.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge rekindled the idea back in January – which would see the elite clubs from the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga and Ligue 1 all fight it out for the top prize.

However, the plans have come in for criticism as the Super League would replace the Champions League and consist of just 20 teams, with only three to four new teams dropping in and out every year.

With that system in place, several of Europe’s biggest clubs would receive no guarantee of European football with Celtic, Ajax, Galatasaray and Napoli all expected to miss the cut.

And despite Bayern being seen as one of the super clubs which would make up the new league, the club’s fans don’t want the plan to come to fruition.

Several even held banners during tonight’s match against Benfica, as per @dw_sports, which translated from German say, “”Monday games or a Super league – football remains the loser”:

What do you think, would a new Super League help the European game?

Or would the exclusion of several top sides make matters worse?
