See What Super Falcons Star Asisat Oshoala Said About The Super League

The creation of the Super League by 12 major clubs in Europe has dominated the headlines over the last few days, and the Barcelona Femeni star has weighed in on the issue

Super Falcons star Asisat Oshoala has urged FIFA and UEFA to apply the same energy used to tackle the Super League in the fight against racism and equality.

Late Sunday night, news emerged that the ‘big six Premier League clubs’, the three biggest clubs in the Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, have created a new Super League.

However, football fans, ex-players, UEFA and FIFA all kicked against the move, accusing the 12 clubs involved of greed.

UEFA and FIFA released a statement on Monday saying they are against it, and the clubs could be banned from their domestic leagues and champions league.

The news continued to generate strong reactions from not just football fans but also governments. And just last night, the six Premier League clubs involved in the decision bowed to pressure and announced their decision to withdraw from the Super League.

Reacting to the news, Oshoala said UEFA and FIFA only acted swiftly because the financial implications could be damaging.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid, Juventus, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are still yet to release a statement announcing their withdrawal from the Super League.

However, the two Milan clubs (Inter and AC) have announced their withdrawal from the controversial competition.
