European Super League: Florentino Pérez uses LeBron James to justify the tournament

Controversial statement by the tournament president and Real Madrid  

European Super League: Florentino Pérez uses LeBron James to justify the tournament

The European Super League is on everyone's lips at the moment, as its creation generated any number of negative comments, from team leaders, clubs as such, coaches, players and even official bodies such as UEFA and FIFA.

Florentino Pérez is one of the masterminds behind the project. We all know the ambition, winning mentality and determination of this character that has led Real Madrid to any number of soccer successes, including winning the UEFA Champions League three times in a row.

However, in the face of such sharp criticism, the merengue boss used as a reference to justify his actions the star of Los Angeles Lakers and the NBA, LeBron James, unleashing controversy and viralizing his response quickly throughout social networks when he offered a fairly complete interview for the program El Chiringuito de Jugones.

Florentino Pérez assured that he knows how much LeBron James earns because he sees it in the media, but that he does not know how much the UEFA president receives in economic income, asserting that transparency in these types of circumstances is extremely important.

"I believe in transparency. I know what Lebron James earns because they make the salaries public, and I don't know what the UEFA president earns. I have lowered my salary and I don't think they have lowered them in the league and UEFA. Transparency is transparency and it is what must be done. I love the world of football very much, and I feel sorry for what is happening at the moment", said the president of Real Madrid.
