In a joint statement, supervisory board member Stephan Schippers and Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl strongly opposed a European Super League.
“The Super League is a club for the super rich, who flout the long established structure of football. It is an attack against the UEFA club competitions, but above all against the national leagues.
“It is cynical and hypocritical to claim that this decision is for the good of football and that it is what football fans want, as do those behind this league.
“We can be proud that all German clubs have opposed this league and we will fight to ensure that the clubs involved are expelled from all national and international competitions.
