Former Barcelona defender shares thoughts on European Super League

Dani Alves spent 17 years playing in Europe for some of the biggest clubs on the continent; however, the 37-year-old did get his start on the old continent playing for Sevilla.

The 37-year-old, who has been playing in Brazil for São Paulo FC since 2019, took to Twitter as the defender commented on the 12 clubs looking to form their European Super League.

“Football was, is, and will always be a sport that transforms lives,” Alves tweeted. “We do not allow top hats to spoil these possibilities of small ones dreaming of being big!!!”

If the super league goes as planned, Sevilla would be one of the clubs left out of the competition as the competition would only have five spots and would be by invite only.

Sevilla could have a great season and finish in the top four or even when UEFA Europa League like they occasionally do; however, they can’t compete against some of Europe’s top clubs unless they receive an invite.

Despite having ties to Barcelona, Alves has made it known where he stands on the issue of the new super league that his former club is going to participate in as soon as next season.
