Serie A powerhouse AC Milan, have left Juventus and Inter Milan as the only Italian clubs going ahead with the doomed UEFA Super League.
As reported here on Futaa this week, Real and Barcelona led Europe’s superclubs in launching a breakaway Super League, including England’s top six teams. But English fans and stakeholders had other ideas.
Wide fury led to all English six clubs quickly pulling out of the Super League, soon after the likes of FC Porto and Borussia Dortmund had rejected the invitations to become part of the new event.
Juventus and Inter remained silent after announcing the move on Sunday night, until AC Milan announced a change of mind on Wednesday.
"We accepted the invitation to participate in the Super League project with the genuine intention to deliver the best possible European competition for football fans around the world and in the best interest of the club and our own fans. Change is not always easy, but evolution is necessary for progress, and the structures of European football have evolved and changed over the decades.
"However, the voices and the concerns of fans around the world have clearly been expressed about the Super League, and AC Milan must be sensitive to the voice of those who love this wonderful sport.
"We will continue to work hard to deliver a sustainable model for football."
