    Arsene Wenger, a former Arsenal manager, has insisted that everybody in Europe dreams of destroying the Premier League.

    Wenger said this while assessing the situation in the wake of the seemingly failed European Super League, ESL, experiment.

    Recall that Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool were among the top six Premier League clubs to pull away from the European Super League.

    “It [ESL] was born dead. From the start, I couldn’t believe it would work,” Wenger told The Telegraph.

    “The most surprising in all that was the English behaviour. Everybody dreams of destroying the Premier League in Europe. In England, we do it ourselves.

    “I can’t understand the rationality behind that because England voted for Brexit, and now they want to bring a Super League. The English have the strongest league. The Super League would destroy, 100 per cent, the Premier League.

    “The basis of our sporting culture in Europe is to have access through your performances to top-level competition.

    “I don’t understand how anybody could believe that capping the link between the domestic league and access to the top league would pass and would be accepted by the fans.

    “The rest is how amateurish all that looked in the presentation, in the preparation. You worry quite a lot about how our top clubs are managed. It looked to be a quick fix for the financial problems that these clubs have.”
