The Barcelona president continues to push for a new European Super League
Joan Laporta spoke to Onda Cero on Wednesday about his return to the Barcelona presidency, admitting that it's been "hard" but assuring that he's just as motivated as he was during the election campaign and that "little by little things are moving forward."
"We are in a tough situation. There's no money in the transfer market, we have to change things," he reflected when asked about the reasons for backing the controversial European Super League.
The competition, presided over by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, has lost the support of the English clubs. "Sooner or later they will regret the decision they've made," Laporta added.
In addition, the Barça chief also sent a message to La Liga president Javier Tebas, who has been very critical of Barça and Madrid's desire to create a tournament that would likely mean the end of the Champions League.
"He needs to know that the Super League will not affect the Spanish league, Barça want to win it every year," he promised.
