A22 Sports Management, which was formed to help create the European Super League, announced last week that it had appointed Bernd Rehart as its new chief executive, the report said.
Six Premier League clubs – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham – signed up to the controversial UEFA plan in April 2021, but it collapsed 48 hours later, but they are still in the works
Legally signed a contract with Ou Chao.
Spanish clubs Barcelona and Real Madrid, as well as Serie A’s Juventus, are sticking to their guns and still aiming to form a new UEFA Champions League.
New chief executive Ray Hart has declared the vision “very dynamic”, but his appointment does not mean Premier League clubs are working behind the scenes to bring the scheme back to life.
Football’s legal sector – especially those involved in the ESL proposal – will be closely watching the European Court of Justice’s upcoming ruling in which Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus accuse UEFA of monopolizing international competitions.
If the verdict is in the club’s favour, both A22 and Rehart could re-energize a potentially resurgent Uefa scheme.
However, this is unlikely to have any immediate implications for Premier League clubs, as they have made firm commitments to the English Premier League (the company) and UEFA – which they must abide by.
The statutes of Premier League clubs require clubs “not to create new modes of play outside the rules of the Premier League”.
