AS Roma blast European Super League (2)

System 'flies in the face of the spirit of the game'

(ANSA) - ROME, APR 20 - AS Roma released a statement on Tuesday saying it was against the foundation of a breakaway European Super League.
    "AS Roma is strongly opposed to this 'closed' system, as it fundamentally flies in the face of the spirit of the game that we all love," the three-times Italian champions said.
    "Some things are more important than money, and we remain firmly committed to Italian football on a domestic level, and to fair, open European competitions for all. "We look forward to continuing to work with Lega Serie A, the Italian Federation, ECA and UEFA to grow and develop the game of football in Italy and around the world.
    "Fans and grassroots football are at the core of our sport, and this must never be forgotten". (ANSA).
