Vincente del Bosque has claimed that he does not believe in the notion of a European Super League.

There are ongoing talks of a new competition coming into existence. European Super League, as they call it, is rumored to include the best among European clubs. Many players and managers are voicing their opinion against the European Super League. And once such manager is Vincente del Bosque.

The Spaniard said that he was against the idea of a European Super League. Del Bosque believes that it will detoriate the quality of the domestic competitions.

“I don’t believe in the European Super League,” Del Bosque said to Marca.

“The Champions League already guarantees six matches. We have to defend the local competition.”

Vincente del Bosque also talked about the ongoing debate of playing La Liga matches in the United States. Although the 68-year agreed that it would reduce the validity of the competition, he also said that the Spanish football will benefit from playing in a foreign land in the sense of promotion and economic growth.

“If we’re being purists, it would falsify the competition.

“But I think it could be beneficial for Spanish football, in the economic sense and to show off our football,” he said.
