LaLiga clubs 'consider going on STRIKE' after Government passes law to help hated European Super League | The Sun

LALIGA clubs are considering going on strike as pressure grows on the Spanish Government to block the European Super League, reports say.

The political situation in Spain has changed in recent weeks as governing PSOE and main opposition Partido Popular have both relaxed their opposition to Perez's proposal.

It had appeared doomed in April 2021 when all of the English clubs pulled out within hours of one another an extraordinary fan backlash.

But Perez, Barca president Joan Laporta and Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli are all still trying to push the unpopular idea.
