ADDRESS OF BORIS JOHNSON IN THE COUNTRY
In an exclusive world interview, Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote an column in The Sun on the proposed European Super Cup.
Anyone who watched me kick football or play with me in the same match would know that I am far from being an expert on the beautiful game, he wrote.
“But you don’t have to be an expert to be horrified at the prospect of the so-called” Super League “being cooked by a few clubs.
“You only need a beat to know that football is not a brand or a product. In fact, it is more than a sport.
“Football clubs in every town, city, and on every floor of the pyramid have a unique place at the center of their community and an unrivaled source of local pride.
“And the joy of the current structure of the game, one thing that keeps people going back year after year, generation after generation, is that even the most seemingly endless times of frustration. can be endured by the possibility, however far away, that one day you might see them rise.
“After all, if Leicester City can win the Premier League, if Nottingham Forest can win Europe not just once but twice then maybe, just maybe, your team can, too. .
“But that can only happen if the playing field is even vague and the possibility of progress is pervasive.”
