British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said today, Tuesday, that no measure is excluded to stop the European Super League, stressing that his government is discussing all possible options, including the enactment of new laws.
Johnson held a meeting with representatives of the Football Association, the Premier League, and fan associations and assured them all that the government would not stand to witness the establishment of a closed store, his office said in a statement.
“He reiterated his full support for the football authorities and assured them that the government supports them to take any necessary action to stop such plans,” the statement said.
He added, “It was clear that no measure was excluded and that the government was discussing all options, including legislative options, to ensure that these plans were stopped.”
