PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has condemned the European Super League, stating that "football is a sport for all".

The French outfit rejected an opportunity to join Europe's elite in the new competition.

English clubs Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham have since left the proposed league.

Speaking before the news of the English exodus, Al-Khelaifi made a statement regarding his club's stance on the matter.

"PSG firmly believes that football is a sport for all. I have been consistent on this point since the very start," said the PSG president.

"We must remember that as a football club we are a family and a community, whose heart is made up by our supporters.

"There is a need to evolve the models of UEFA competition that currently exist and the proposition offered yesterday by UEFA, which concludes 24 months of deep consultation with everyone across the European football landscape, goes in this direction.

"We think that all proposals without UEFA's support do not resolve the problems which the football community is currently facing, but are motivated by personal interest.

"PSG will continue to work with UEFA."
