Real Madrid president Florentino Perez continues to advocate for the European Super League project despite facing severe backlash from fans and clubs across the continent.

Los Blancos, along with Barcelona and Juventus are the only members remaining with the project after the debacle following the initial announcement of the project.

With UEFA and FIFA threatening sanctions against the clubs, if they go ahead with the project, the Super League clubs were eagerly waiting for the verdict from the Court of Justice of the European Union in hope that it could help them go ahead with the launch of the breakaway league.

However, the EU Advocate General has published his opinion on the matter of the Super League, insisting that UEFA and FIFA are well within their rights to ban clubs from participating in competitions organised by them if they are part of the rogue league.

“While the European Super League Company is free to create its own independent football competition outside of the UEFA and FIFA ecosystem, it cannot, in addition to creating that competition, continue to participate in football competitions organized by FIFA and UEFA without the prior authorization of these federations,” the statement from the Advocate General reads (h/t MARCA).

This move will be seen as a major win by UEFA and FIFA who have been against the European Super League project and have been threatening sanctions against clubs if they continue to push for the breakaway league.

As for the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, this development is certain to come as a major roadblock and it will be interesting to see how Florentino Perez & co. go about the project moving forward.

Jude Bellingham’s Euro 2024 campaign came to a heartbreaking end as England slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Spain in the final.

Bellingham was one of the better players for England in what was a hard-fought affair at the Olympiastadion. However, the Real Madrid star was not able to get his team over the line, with England conceding a late winner from Mikel Oyarzabal.

Bellingham was visibly disappointed at the result and was seen storming off the pitch and even kicking a drinks cooler in frustration.

Speaking to a press after the defeat, Bellingham expressed his thoughts, calling it a ‘heartbreaking result’.

“We all wanted nothing more than to make history and make people of England proud but we didn’t deliver. Going forward we will analyze it, it’s a young group,” he said (h/t Daily Mail).

Bellingham was indeed one of the more important players for an England side, which was criticised by many for their underwhelming performances

However, the Real Madrid star also looked at the positive. “It’s disappointing because we have to deliver at some point but there are things we can take from this,” he said.

“As a team, we will take the positives and negatives and we have to find a way to get it over the line,” the midfielder added.

While the defeat to Spain was certainly a blow for young Bellingham, the Englishman can hold his head up high, as he is coming on the back of a tremendous campaign that saw him secure the La Liga and the Champions League title.

For now, Bellingham will be looking forward to an extended summer break, before shifting his focus back to Real Madrid ahead of the new season.
