FC Barcelona: Al Khelaifi and the ECA pressured Roma not to go to Gamper

Elast monday, the rome surprisingly announced that it will unilaterally terminate the contract for which it will dispute this year’s edition of the Joan Gamper trophy. The announcement had taken place a couple of weeks ago, so the decision of the Italian club surprised Barcelona a lot. The reason, according to the Italian club, was that they had decided to change the calendar of the pre-season matches, so the Camp Nou was left without the return of Mourinho.

However, the real reason was not that. The real reason is that the Italian club received pressures to not go to the Camp Nou. Specifically that were the ECA and Al Khelaifi those who contacted the Roman board so that they would not play the match, as published by Corriere dello Sport.

This pressure was made because Barcelona is one of the few clubs that have opted for the european super league, a competition that PSG categorically rejects. It is also rejected by the ECA, made up of numerous clubs that do not enter that competition, and UEFA, which sees the Super League as a great rival for the Champions League.

We will have to see now if those calls for boycott Barcelona are still being produced. The Barça club is looking for a rival for the match to be played August 6th And if they did it with Roma, you have to think that they can also do it with other European clubs.
