Gundogan dared to criticize the new format of the Champions League

The Manchester City midfielder is not a supporter of innovative ideas.

Ilkay Gundogan commented on the changes in the Champions League regulations. They will take effect from the 2024/2025 season. The midfielder wants everything to remain the same.

“Could you also discuss the new format of the Champions League? We are given more and more matches, but no one thinks about the players. The new Champions League format is just the lesser evil when compared to the Super League.

The current Champions League format works great and is the most popular club tournament for everyone “, – Gundogan tweeted.


In three years’ time, there will be ten UEFA Champions League matches in the group stage. Teams will play within a single table in the same league.
