Barcelona president Laporta: European Super League project is alive

Barcelona president Joan Laporta is adamant the European Super League project isn't dead.

Barca, Real Madrid and Juventus continue to drive the controversial project.

"It's not parked, the opposite, it's alive and dialogue is open with all sorts of people in football who are working on it," Laporta said. "Juve, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all there and we keep winning in the courts. We're still working on making a more attractive competition.

"That's why we're there, to achieve that, and it could be favourable economically for the clubs that take part that it's an open competition, with promotion and relegation. Also, it should be noted we're not closing the door on UEFA, as much as they have acted aggressively from the start.

"They saw the Champions League threatened and the Super League would be a proposal to replace the Champions League, but not with a belligerent attitude but rather a dialogue with UEFA ".
