This includes the host of The late late show, James Corden, who took nearly eight minutes of airtime on Monday night’s show to mourn the Super League and the consequences it could have for the rest of the football world. Shall we dig a little deeper on the matter? Of course! But first, feel free to check out James Corden’s entire rant from last night’s show.
What is the Super League?
ESPN had reported that it is possible for up to 15 teams from Europe’s biggest and most competitive clubs to launch this European Super League as early as the 2023-2024 season, which really isn’t that far off.
“Bringing together the world’s best clubs and players to play against each other all season long, the Super League will open a new chapter in European football, providing world-class competition and facilities, and increased financial support for the wider football pyramid”, said Joel Glazer, part owner of Manchester United and vice-chairman of the Super League.
The Super League format would describe two pools of ten home and away games, with the top three teams in each group qualifying for the quarter-finals. “Our 12 founding clubs represent billions of fans around the world and 99 European trophies,” said Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, who claimed how this move would help secure the long-term future of the game while preserving the traditions. from yesteryear.
James Corden breaks loose
While both the Premier League and UEFA have already expressed their own displeasure with the Super League, The late late show host James Corden had some feelings of his own to share with the world. “It’s the end of the sport we love,” she said The late late show host, who was seemingly distraught over the news of a preliminary new competition on Monday’s show.
Corden offered the following monologue, “The truth is, this whole thing, take this step, kill these teams, these owners, they will kill hundreds of other soccer teams who compete with them and have fought with them many times over the years,” without taking into account the fan bases of those teams and without taking into account the fan bases of their own teams that are also broken. ”
He continued: ‘I’m devastated, I’m really devastated. I am heartbroken because the owners of these teams have shown the worst kind of greed I have ever seen in the sport. And these dreams have just been shattered, not just in Britain, but across Europe. And the reason these dreams have been shattered and rejected is that a group of billionaires can buy themselves a bigger boat or a second boat. “
