Real Madrid president outlines his Super League plan

Florentino Perez, the Real Madrid president, is plotting a football revolution in Europe after calling for the continent's biggest clubs to create a new Super League. Perez, 62, wants to alter the face of European football, and has criticised Uefa's handling of the Champions League. "We have to agree a new European Super League which guarantees that the best always play the best - something that does not happen in the Champions League," said Perez.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo believes the Spanish Primera Division will leave its English counterpart trailing in terms of quality next season following Real Madrid's summer spending spree. "The Premier League is a very good competition, but I think that the Spanish league is going to have a little more quality because of the players that are arriving," said Ronaldo.
