It has been an extraordinary few days for European football!
“The biggest clubs on the continent quit the Champions League, then returned, humiliated and apologetic in less than 48 hours” reports the BBC. But why did the English clubs really decide to leave the European Super League?
Just two days after the founding of the European Super League, as many as six founding clubs decided to withdraw from this competition – Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal.
Many believe that they made this decision because they could not cope with the enormous pressure of the football public, fans, governments, UEFA and FIFA, national leagues … However, the Catalan newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” believes in another scenario – the English received an offer that they could not refuse!
Reportedly, UEFA only offered English clubs a serious amount of money to leave the Super League, and they did so. However, other clubs have started to leave this so-called competition.
The football club Inter from Milan has also decided to give up its participation in the new European Super League. “Inter no longer considers the Super League project interesting at this moment,” the famous Italian club said in a brief statement.
The European Super League experienced a complete collapse 48 hours after its founding. The break-up of this competition was initiated by Chelsea, which was the first to decide to withdraw from participation, and soon the same decision was made by Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United.
The Super League fall apart like a house of cards…
