Barcelona, Real Madrid Continue To Oppose Chinese Supercopa

Real Madrid President Florentino Pérez and Barcelona President Sandro Rosell "said no" to their respective clubs playing the Supercopa in China, according to J.G. Matallanas of AS. La Liga presidents and Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) President Ángel María Villar met to "decide if five of the next seven" Supercopa matches will be played in China. Eighteen of the presidents were in favor of playing the game in China, but Pérez and Rosell continued to oppose the idea. The intention of Villar in the meeting was "to ratify the agreement" that was reached by the RFEF and Chinese company United Vansen Int'l Sport. But Villar "wanted an absolute majority," and with Barcelona and Real Madrid opposing the deal this did not happen (AS, 10/15).
