Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has reacted to the collapse of the European Super League.
According to Drogba, he is pleased to see the collapse of the proposed European Super League as the breakaway competition threatened the core values of football and ‘discriminated’ against smaller teams.
“Promotion, relegation, unexpected results is what drives the emotions of the game. Being together, as players, as fans… that’s what makes it the beautiful game,” Drogba tweeted.
“‘Little’ Greece beating the ‘big’ Portugal few years ago, Red Star Belgrade beating my team Marseille or even Leicester City working hard to win the Premier League title in front of the ‘big four’ is what makes football the beautiful game.
“Imagine all this effort and not being allowed to compete against other teams because you’re not one of them despite playing the same game.
“It’s a kind of discrimination and I’m glad this project is not happening for the sake of the beautiful game and our amazing fans all around the world.”
