Boniek aims dig at Juventus over Super League

Poland FA President Zbigniew Boniek taunts Juventus saying: 'It is useless to lock up the best teams in Europe in their own league if some of them can't even win against the little Atalanta.'

Boniek, a former Roma and Juventus forward, is now serving as the head of the Poland football federation and is attending the UEFA Executive Committee in Montreux today.

He had already expressed his discontent with the Super League earlier today by sharing the latest ECA Announcement on Twitter.

"Someone is making a bad impression here," he wrote.

He then gave an interview to Sky Sport Italia, aiming a dig at Juventus, whose President Andrea Agnelli is one of the architects of the Super League project and its vice president.

"Football belongs to everyone. We are Europeans, we do not have the American mentality," he said.

"We can't think that only rich clubs can have fun. We are all convinced that there is no need to lock up the 12-15 richest teams in the world, especially if these clubs can't even win against a so-called small club as Atalanta."

Boniek didn't mention Juventus but clearly referred to the Old Lady, who suffered a 1-0 defeat against La Dea yesterday and slipped to fourth place, just two points ahead of fifth-placed Napoli.
