‘I would like to say something about the European Super League,’ the Frenchman said.
‘Since one year we have seen games on TV with the best clubs in the world and the best players in the world, and it was so boring, and it’s still so boring, because the fans are not there – the fans singing, jumping, supporting their teams.
‘The fans are the most important thing in football. They have to be respected.
‘Did these big clubs ask the fans what they thought about this idea? No, unfortunately, and that’s a shame.’
