Bayern Munich president, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has accused his Juventus counterpart Andrea Agnelli of not picking his calls regarding the newly formed European Super League.
Juventus is one of the 12 clubs to have subscribed to the new league something that Bayern has opposed and according to Rummenigge, he wanted to understand the decision-making process of Agnelli towards the new development.
“I wanted to talk to Agnelli but I couldn’t find him on the phone. I don’t know his motives and I don’t want to criticize him without knowing them. Maybe there is a reason I don’t know, “he told Corriere della Sera via Calciomercato.
Juve and eleven other European teams including six from England have abandoned their loyalty to UEFA to form the new competition with the move expected to hand them more control over the money in the competition.
The teams believe that they can make more money than what they are getting from the European competitions right now but Bayern is one of the top European sides who aren’t in the new competition and they have no intention of joining it.
