Only Real Madrid and Barcelona have stayed in the Super League and this Thursday, the 39 other La Liga and Segunda clubs were completely against this project.
While that was going on, Joan Laporta analysed everything that happened in recent days to 'TV3'. He said that in his opinion, it is the right time to launch the competition and that it is needed.
"It's absolutely necessary we big clubs can have our opinion. We are in favour of domestic leagues and we'll talk to UEFA. We are sensible, but it's a necessity, even though the 'socios' will have the final word. The big clubs contribute a lot and we must participate in the financial distribution," Laporta said.
The Barca president said that "it must be an attractive competition based on sporting merit" so the club "is open to dialogue with UEFA:" "We need more resources so that this becomes a spectacle."
Joan Laporta that he has received pressure to quit the Super League, but insisted that "the proposal still exists".
"There has been pressure from some clubs, but the proposal still exists. There has been very important investment, the salaries are very high and all that has to be taken into account the same way as sporting merit is," he concluded.
