If we can believe Barcelona chairman Joan Laporta, Anderlecht and Club Brugge are fully committed to participating in the Super League. A remarkable statement that cries out for a response from both camps.
That also came now, because opposite Le Soir Both Purple-White and Blue-Black formally deny that they gave their consent to be part of the controversial and until now hypothetical project.
In the case of the Brussels residents, this is not the first time, because more than a month ago Anderlecht was forced to deny rumors about the Super League even through the club channels.
“Anderlecht takes note of the decision of UEFA and FIFA to allow the creation of independent competitions, but has no commitment whatsoever with the people behind the Super League,” it said at the time.
“The club will continue to work to improve European football and the position of Belgian football within it. Anderlecht will of course continue to closely monitor all developments,” that first statement concluded.
There is as yet no official announcement in the Lotto Park this time, nor in Jan Breydel. Yet Laporta’s words seem to contain little truth. To be continued.
