English Premier League top six clubs have been successfully forced to dump the embarrassing decision to join the damned UEFA Super League concept.
Following various announcements on Sunday night, from the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, football fans, former players and coaches responded with a storm of criticism to reject the move.
The clubs have since reversed the decision to break away from the established competition to join Europe’s superclubs.
"Manchester United will not be participating in the European Super League. We have listened carefully to the reaction from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders."
"Manchester City Football Club can confirm that it has formally enacted the procedures to withdraw from the group developing plans for a European Super League."
“Having joined the group late last week, we have now had time to consider the matter fully and have decided that our continued participation in these plans would not be in the best interests of the Club, our supporters or the wider football community."
“As a result of listening to you and the wider football community over recent days we are withdrawing from the proposed Super League. We made a mistake, and we apologise for it."
“We can confirm that we have formally commenced procedures to withdraw from the group developing proposals for a European Super League (ESL)."
“Liverpool Football Club can confirm that our involvement in proposed plans to form a European Super League has been discontinued.”
