Plans to create a European Super League shook the football world recently. Sport has indeed become big business… but is it a good one?
Please join Deon Gouws, Chief Investment Officer at Credo Wealth, as he chats to Simon Kuper, renowned columnist for the Financial Times. Mr Kuper lives in Paris but is a true global citizen with much to offer on a variety of topics, in addition to his unique insights into football and other sports.
Simon Kuper has been a leading columnist for the Financial Times for the last 20 years. He has also written a number of best-selling and award-winning books. Simon is well-known for his insights into sports – especially football – but he also covers a wide variety of other topics, from observations on city life, to global politics and demographics. His work is peppered with humour and insightful anthropological observations. All of this has been enhanced by his nomadic lifestyle, having lived in a number of different countries and speaking several languages.
