Former Bayern Munich CEO Karl Heinz Rummenigge hit out at Juventus Director Andrea Agnelli while talking about the now-deceased Super League project.

The Super League project was announced last season by six founding member clubs. However, Juventus, Real Madrid, and Barcelona were the three masterminds behind the potential project. It was introduced as a breakaway elite European club’s league from the UEFA Champions League. The project was soon shelved by the clubs after their own fans and others protested against the elite attitude in it. Real Madrid president Perez has however promised that the project will return in the future with a different and improved format.

Former Bayern Munich CEO slams the Super League project

While talking to an exclusive interview with Corriere Della Sera, the former Bayern Munich CEO expressed his views on criticism faced by Qatar for hosting the world cup and also talked about the super league.

In regards to the criticism of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, he said;

“In 2010 when the World Cup was announced no one complained. To do it twelve years later makes little sense to me. But I don’t criticise the critics, the issue is complicated, and it’s right that everyone has their own vision.”

He also talked about the Super League and blamed Juventus Chairman for the project.

“Yes, there is no other motivation. And even the amateurish way in which they presented it proves it. The Champions League remains the most popular competition.”

“The Super League is dead, no German, English or French team will ever join it. The Italians? I know Marotta well and I know that he would like to earn a bit more. But at what price?”

“I don’t understand why someone like Andrea Agnelli, who has always given me the impression of being intelligent, has acted in this way. I read that football is sick, but thanks to who? Also thanks to him.”

He attributed the higher transfer market pricing to Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

“City and PSG drug the market. It’s out of control more and more every year. Bayern has a different philosophy, always with a budget in the black for thirty years.”
