West Brom boss Bilic slams European Super League plans

West Brom boss Slaven Bilic has slammed plans of the European Super League.

Bilic is against the proposal having seen something similar happen in basketball following the creation of the EuroLeague.

“I don't like the idea," the Croatian said when asked about what he makes of the European Premier League proposal.

“It happened in basketball in Europe. In my country, we follow basketball.

“In basketball, the Euroleague as they call it, it killed the domestic championships a little bit.

“The clubs were guaranteed to be in it, through the domestic championship you couldn't qualify so it became a little bit, a little bit League One.

“A new European Premier League? I don't think there is space for that and the Premier League."
