“Unfortunately, players cannot decide on this. In the end, when the new competition was decided, we were just puppets of FIFA and UEFA. They just made as much money as possible and drained the players physically,” he said. Toni Kroos in a podcast Just lop, which he initiated with his younger brother, Felix Kroos, as reported ESPN.
Previously, there was also a proposal to change the format Champions League Becomes European Super League. The tournament is scheduled to be held in 2022, involving 16-18 teams and competing at least 30 times. Reportedly, Liverpool and Manchester United agreed to the tournament, which in turn generated a lot of criticism.

“From a sporting point of view, maybe it looks good because we will be competing at the top level. But, the gap between small and big teams will get bigger. Everything doesn’t have to be that way, be faster, or make more money,” he explained. Toni Kroos.
