Novak Djokovic on the Soccer European Super League

In the last few hours the world of sport and especially that of football has been disrupted by the announcement of the European SuperLeague, a new competition where 12 of the main European clubs, among others the Italian teams Juventus, Inter and Milan, became founders of a new competition, estranging themselves so from the Champions League and UEFA.

This choice shocked the world of sport and yesterday fans from all over the world protested against this closed organization which in fact closed to any 'smaller' club After several protests with even Chelsea fans (a club that joined the competition) who protested outside the club headquarters, most of the English clubs opted to leave the Super League and in the night the suspension of this really fast new competition was announced.

In the end the project will not happen: most of the clubs involved, especially those of the English Premier League have declined.

Although it concerns another sport, several tennis players also wanted to express their opinion regarding this new competition.

World number one and eighteen-time Grand Slam title winner Novak Djokovic commented on the European Super League as follows: "Soccer is not my sport, I follow it as a fan (of Milan) but my idea of ​​competition, in general.

and despite not having different information on all this, it is really the opposite of this proposal.

I defend the principle that there is always the possibility that more clubs, or in the case of tennis, more athletes, have the opportunity to compete at the highest level or be part of a tournament with the best in the world.

The great thing about sport, which fascinates and attracts the public, is that it offers a chance to many athletes or in this case to many clubs. It's nice that there are, in my discipline as in the others, new faces and new winners or champions."

The number one in the world is engaged today in the Atp 250 tournament in Belgrade where he will debut in a match on paper that is anything but prohibitive against the Korean Kwon Soonwoo. After the surprising elimination of Monte Carlo the Serbian is now called to react.

Djokovic and Nadal will be present at the Italian Open 2021!

It is the biggest tennis event of the year in Italy, this year divides this role with the end-of-year ATP Finals that will be held in Turin, but there is always great anticipation around the ATP Internazionali d'Italia in Rome, Masters 1000 which will feature the best tennis players on the Tour.
