La Liga boss Tebas slams 'ignorance' of European Premier League organisers


Reports that the continent's top clubs might be ready to join the proposed new tournament provoked a strong reaction from the Spanish supremo

La Liga president Javier Tebas has dismissed the prospect of a breakaway European Premier League, stating that such a proposal is a product of "ignorance".

According to reports that began to circulate on Tuesday, the prospective competition is backed by Wall Street giants JP Morgan as well as English clubs Liverpool and Manchester United and could come into being as soon as 2022. 

The EPL would bring together Europe's top clubs in a single tournament, which would ultimately replace the Champions League as the continent's top club prize.
