Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has warned Inter and others that Europe’s new Super League won’t solve their financial problems caused by COVID-19.

Inter were one of 12 leading European clubs to announce their participation in the new franchise last night, in a group of founding members which also included Serie A rivals AC Milan and Juventus.

The new league is due to start ‘as soon as practicable’ but has received widespread condemnation from football officials and supporters, with UEFA president Aleksandar Ceferin dismissing it as ‘a nonsense project’ and ‘disgraceful’.

“Bayern Munich hasn’t taken part in the formation of a Super League because we think football’s current structure guarantees a solid base,” Inter’s former midfielder Rummenigge said, as quoted by FcInterNews.it.

“I don’t think the Super League will resolve the financial problems clubs have been caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Instead, clubs in Europe should work together to guarantee that the structure of labour costs are appropriate with regard to revenue and can make European football more rational.”

Inter, AC Milan and Juventus would be joined in the Super League by six Premier League clubs (Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham) and three La Liga teams (Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid).

The games would be played in midweek, overlapping with the UEFA Champions League but allowing clubs to keep playing in their domestic leagues.
