Bayern Munich on Tuesday gave a clear “no” to a breakaway Super League as club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was elected to Uefa’s executive committee, replacing Juventus supremo Andrea Agnelli as a representative of the European Club Association (ECA).
Rummenigge made it clear that club world champions Bayern will not be joining the breakaway Super League of 12 clubs with six from England, as well as three each from Italy and Spain.
“On behalf of the board, I would like to make it explicitly clear that FC Bayern will not be taking part in the Super League,” said Rummenigge in a statement.
Rummenigge, whose term lasts three years, replaces Agnelli, who quit as ECA president amid plans for a new Super League with the Italian set to be vice-president of the controversial new competition.
“Our members and fans reject a Super League,” said Hainer.
