The proposed European Super League competition might have hit the rocks as all six Premier League teams involved in it have withdrawn.

 

Manchester City were the first club to pull out after Chelsea had signalled their intent to do so by preparing documentation to withdraw.

 

The other four sides – Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham – have all now followed suit.

 

The Super League said it would reconsider “the most appropriate steps to reshape the project”.

 

The 12-team Super League was announced on Sunday to widespread condemnation.

 

The remaining six clubs, Spain’s Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid and Italy’s AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus are yet to comment on the withdrawal of the English sides.

“Despite the announced departure of the English clubs, forced to take such decisions due to the pressure put on them, we are convinced our proposal is fully aligned with European law and regulations,” the ESL said, adding it was “convinced that the current status quo of European football needs to change”.

 

In an interview with Italian newspaper la Repubblica, Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli said the remaining clubs will “press ahead” and the project still had “a 100% chance of being a success”.

 

Manchester City confirmed they have “formally enacted the procedures to withdraw” from the Super League.
