After few days of Real Madrid winning their eleventh European Championship, the president of the club, Florentino Perez has called for a revamp in the league’s structure.

“I believe that the future is open to everything; to a true European competition, and that’s where we’re going to be,” Perez told Marca.
“It’s very difficult at present, but it’s a possibility in the future I’m sure.
“We have asked that UEFA change the format of the Champions League because I believe that the current version is rather worn out,” Parez added.
