Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has welcomed UEFA’s position to resolutely oppose the plan to set up a European Super League.
According to MTI, PM Orbán supports the European unity of the sport and the principle of solidarity. “Hungary’s position is that the beauty and eminence of the world’s greatest game comes from the fact that it belongs to everyone and cannot be monopolized by the richest,” PM Orbán said.
The prime minister added that Hungary supports efforts by UEFA, FIFA and Hungarian Football Association MLSZ to protect the integrity of the game, both on a national and a European level.
UEFA, the English Football Association and the Premier League, the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and LaLiga, and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and Lega Serie already condemned the plan by a group of English, Spanish and Italian clubs to set up a Super League before it was officially announced on Sunday.
