Real chief Perez wants Euro Super League

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is plotting a football revolution in Europe after calling for the continent's biggest clubs to create a new "Super League". Perez, who returned for a second stint as president of the Spanish giants last month, has embarked on a multi-million spending spree over the past few weeks, signing the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Karim Benzema as part of his plan to assemble a new generation of galacticos.

The 62-year-old is now casting his net even wider in his bid to alter the face of European football, and has criticised UEFA's handling of the Champions League, indicating that the format of the competition does not benefit the biggest clubs.

"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," Perez told Spanish television.

Perez added, however, that he hoped his proposed format could be implemented "without abandoning the national leagues".
