Former Arsenal gaffer and current FIFA football development director Arsene Wenger thinks the idea of a European Super League would spell death for the Premier League.

"I don't believe that Europe is ready for that," the French ex-coach told the Guardian. "The period is actually that the Premier League has a superiority. The project wanted to reinforce this superiority.

"The other leagues tried to destroy the advantage the Premier League has. For them, the best way to tame that is to create a European League. That means to destroy the Premier League basically.

"If they get the agreement from the English big clubs, then it will happen."

Ex Barca chief Josep Maria Bartomeu lifted the curtain on a Super League during his press conference as he left the club.
