Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte believes “sport must be meritocratic” but called on UEFA to reflect following the collapse of the European Super League.
“As a sporting man, I think we mustn’t ever forget tradition. This is history and it should be respected,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia.
“We mustn’t forget the passion for sport, and sport must be meritocratic. We work to win and to earn something. Meritocracy must always be first and foremost.
“Having said that, everything that happened shows it’s only right that UEFA reflect too. They organise tournaments, take all the revenue and reserve only a minimal part of that for the teams who are actually taking part in these tournaments.
“The players are squeezed like lemons with this packed fixture list and get very little for it. The organisations need to consider better remuneration. Clubs invest in coaches and players, so they deserve some of the revenue they help to generate.
“If you get 10 from rights and keep seven of it for yourself, giving out just three to everybody else, that’s not really fair. I think the split needs to be reconsidered.”
