FC Barcelona is trying to get rid of two players, the UEFA president does not want to hear about a European Super League and England not spared after its defeat against Belgium, find in your press review Foot Mercato the latest information from the European sports press.
In Spain, this morning it is Luis Suarez who makes the cover of the daily Marca. The Uruguayan is showing his ambitions with Atlético Madrid, with whom he hopes to win La Liga this season. The striker also reflects on his controversial departure from FC Barcelona this summer: “I was sad and hurt by the way I left,” he said.
But what interests us on the front page of the Madrid newspaper is the interview that UEFA President Aleksander Eeferin gave. This one speaks candidly about the European Super League more and more evoked in recent months. The leader of European football does not go there by four paths and totally dismantles this option:
“For me, the Super League is out of the question. This is the dream of two or three clubs in Europe, the very ones who don’t care about solidarity. They don’t care about anything but themselves, they would even hurt their clubs, but they probably don’t know it yet.
The idea is not very serious. It was born from the departure of the former president of Barcelona, but I think it was more of a populist or political idea than a serious idea.” What’s to end the debate? Nothing is less certain…
Barca ready to lose two Masia-trained players
Mercato appears on the front page of Sport this morning. Indeed, the Catalan daily tells us that two nuggets of FC Barcelona are on the start.
For example, Riqui Puig and Carles Aleo are not expected to stay at Barca this season and are expected to leave the club this winter. “Theblaugrana club is looking for interesting opportunities for its two midfielders during the winter transfer window,” the daily says. And the preferred option for both players would be a dry transfer.
The media reports that several clubs are on the ranks and will soon take action on these issues. Mundo Deportivo’sside talked about Eric Garcia’s situation. While the defender is unlikely to be released by Manchester City this winter, the Catalan club is coming up with an internal plan B for a central defender. Indeed, several players from Team B could appear in the coming months in order to make up for the lack of solutions to this position.
England’s defeat makes a mess
Last night, Belgium won against England (2-0). The two teams met for first place in Group 2. But the Three Lions did not compete against the vastly superior Red Devils. This is what The Times points out on its front page.
The British daily said the Belgian team was”out of reach.” The English will not see the Final-4 of this competition and the media hopes that this defeat with bitter taste will soon be”overcome” because it could leave traces given the proposed game.
The Daily Mirror is less magnanimous and believes that this encounter resonates like”the bells of hell.” “England crashed in Belgium despite Jack Grealish’s heroism.” The Aston Villa player was one of the only ones at the level and the tabloid is sure to point it out.
For its part, The Last Hour highlights the resounding success of the Red Devils and believes that they have”hit hard.” It was Roberto Martinez’s “39th win in 50 matches.” Belgium’s qualifier will be played on Wednesday against Denmark.
