Tournament organisers were eager to recruit 15 foundation clubs ahead of the disastrous launch.Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli claimed last week that several other clubs were desperate to join, but it was the ESL board who made all the running in terms of recruitment, though they did not make any other formal offers in the hope that PSG and Bayern would eventually sign up.

Prospective Derby County owner Erik Alonso has rejected claims that his takeover is in jeopardy, which has drawn an interesting response from fans of the East Midlands club.

Alonso’s agreement to buy the club was announced last month but reports yesterday indicated that it is now in jeopardy.

Those reports claim that alarm bells are ringing inside the club, with suggestions that the takeover will not go ahead and concern over a potential plan to borrow against Pride Park.

The Spaniard took to talkSPORT to offer his response to those reports, rejecting the suggestion that there were issues with the deal.

Fresh update emerges regarding Erik Alonso's Derby County takeover

  Fresh update emerges regarding Erik Alonso's Derby County takeover He agreed to purchase the club from Mel Morris earlier this monthWhilst the Rams' latest slip-up wasn't punished by Rotherham United or Sheffield Wednesday who also lost at the weekend, they simply have to secure a positive result in their upcoming clash with Swansea City in order to ease their fears of relegation.

“No that is not true,” claimed Alonso. “We will go ahead with the takeover.”

He added: “I don’t know (why there is doubt). Exactly, I don’t know. People can talk but we know the truth.

“We continue and we go ahead.”

Pressed on whether he was going to refinance Pride Park as part of the deal, Alonso said: “No. No. No. I am putting the debt on my name, what I want to do is put the stadium warranty under my name, that’s all. Because I can use that money to buy players.

“The EFL want us to pay the debt from MSD right now but we say no.”

The prospective new Derby owner indicated that he would still go ahead with his takeover even if the Rams were relegated on Saturday.

He said: “Why not? Derby County is bigger than any division, so yes.”

Alonso’s comments have caused a stir among Rams supporters, with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.
