Galatasaray chairman calls for European super league

Galatasaray chairman Unal Aysal has called for a European super league to be created as soon as possible.

There has long been talk about the potential of a newly-formed league consisting of the best clubs from across the continent.

Four years ago Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger predicted such a league would become reality within a decade, although the idea has yet to get off the ground.

Galatasaray chief Aysal reignited the debate at the Leaders in Football conference on Thursday, calling for the creation of a 20-strong league.

I think it is the future of football. It has to be created, not after 10 years but as soon as possible.

Football is a big industry, a growing industry, and a European super league will bring a lot of support and also energise football in general.

I think it could be 20 big teams, for example, in Europe, with the last three, four or five teams can change every year.

I think it can be operated in a proper way in order to make it effective and useful to European football and also to bring new horizons in football."
