Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is concerned over the possible formation of a European Super League.

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has voiced his concerns over the possible formation of a European Super League.

The suspension of top flight leagues across Europe and doubts over how the current campaigns will be completed, due to the coronavirus, has increased speculation over the development of a breakaway competition.

The most recent plans proposed the creation of a 32-team division that would replace the current knockout format of the Champions League, however Rummenigge insists the German outfit would remain committed to both the Bundesliga and the Champions League.

"I'm not in favour (of it). First, because I love football, because I played at the highest possible level. Second, because I know how the public thinks," Rummenigge told Spanish newspaper El Pais.

"Suppose we establish a Super League: there may be more liquidity in the system, but in the end it will be money that will go to the players and the agents.

"The coronavirus can help us create a more rational world, also when it comes to football. We must correct the mistakes of the past."

The Premier League are believed to be against the idea of a European Super League, however both Juventus and Real Madrid are understood to have backed the proposals.
