Bayern Munich issue statement on Super League formation

The latest Super League, according to Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, will not fix the financial problems that European clubs are facing.

The Bundesliga giants are one of the few teams to decline an invitation to join the new season, which has a total of 12 teams.

Manchester United, Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Tottenham are the English clubs in the new league and are joined by Spanish giants Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid.

AC Milan, Juventus, and Inter Milan are also part of the league, which is set to start in August.

“The modified group stage will contribute to an increase in excitement and the emotional experience in the competition.”
