Platini says no problem with CR-SR league merger
News portal Panorama AM reports that UEFA President, Michel Platini, announced that he is not against the proposal of the Czech and Slovak football associations to create a single league for both countries, even though in theory this is against UEFA rules.
The two associations presented their joint proposal to UEFA after being given the go ahead from UEFA that it was not categorically against the merger. Platini said on Friday 10 December that he was not negative to the idea, but that a broader analysis was required due to its complexity, as it would affect also the lower leagues because of promotion and relegation.
If given green, the idea could maybe get crowd numbers back up with rival teams making trips next door, but definitely one for debate.
