Joan Laporta spoke with Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman and the four captains of the first team to discuss the club's involvement in the European Super League.

The project launched on Sunday with 12 founder members but the six English sides have since withdrawn, as have the three Italian sides and Atletico Madrid, leaving just Barça and Real Madrid.

Barça president Laporta spoke to Koeman, Leo Messi, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto to explain the situation that has generated a lot of controversy.

Laporta made it clear that the board would not decide unilaterally on Barça's involvement in a hypothetical Super League and that it would be the members, at the next assembly, who vote on the club's inclusion.

The response he received was clear: the coaching staff and the squad want the best for Barça and won't position themselves in the conflict until it's resolved.

Everything remains open, therefore. Barça are still one of the founding members of the Super League but will not rule out abandoning the project if certain circumstances are not fulfilled.
