European breakaway talks WERE held in London, admits organiser

European breakaway talks WERE held in London between Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, claims one of the organisers.

The business partner of Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross revealed what really went on at the swanky Park Lane hotel.

Charlie Stillitano was asked by The Sun whether the European Super League was on the agenda and said: “I think it is.

“They’re talking about it all over Europe. At least a change in format.”

He added: “We talked about restructuring the Champions League.

“What’s happening with Leicester is a wonderful, wonderful story. Maybe that’s absolutely spectacular — unless you’re a Manchester United fan, Liverpool fan.. or Chelsea fan.

“I guess they don’t have a birthright to be in it every year. But it’s the age-old argument: US sports franchises versus what they have in Europe.

“There are wonderful, wonderful, wonderful elements to relegation and promotion.

“And there are good arguments for a closed system.”
