Inter’s legendary former striker Sandro Mazzola has come out in favour of plans to create a new European Super League.

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’.

Speaking to Adnkronos on Monday (via FcInter1908.it), Mazzola said: “It was time we did something to renew things.

“I think it’s a good thing, that’s how it should be.

“It’s a valid and interesting project, we need to change things otherwise people will grow tired with always the same things.

“The Super League does seem a bit strange to me though, what are the other teams who are deemed less important going to do?

“Perhaps we could try it for a year to see if the project is valid or not, while ensuring the teams stay in Serie A.”

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.
