European Super League Suspended After English Clubs Pull Out Of The Controversial Scheme Following Furious Backlash From Fans

Published

The European Super League has officially been suspended after all six English clubs formally withdrew following furious backlash from fans and footballers.

On Sunday, April 18 six English clubs — (Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur) alongside three teams from Italy (AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Juventus) and three from Spain ( Atlético Madrid, Barcelona, and Real Madrid) disclosed their plans to form a controversial breakaway competition, which they referred to in the announcement as the Super League.

One of the reasons for the breakaway was because the top clubs feel cheated by the current champions league format which does not give them enough financial protection.

The top clubs in Premier League does not like the fact that they earn the same amount of television rights money as the likes of Burnley, West Ham, West Brom when they believe fans from all over the world will rather watch a Manchester United vs Chelsea than a West Brom vs Burnley.

However, just 48 hours after the announcement, all six English clubs released statements announcing their intention to step away from the competition after receiving heavy backlash from fans and footballers.

The Super League has responded, confirming that it will suspend the project while maintaining that ‘football needs to change.’

‘The European Super League is convinced that the current status quo of European football needs to change,’ read a statement released on Tuesday April 20.

‘We are proposing a new European competition because the existing system does not work. Our proposal is aimed at allowing the sport to evolve while generating resources and stability for the full football pyramid, including helping to overcome the financial difficulties experienced by the entire football community as a result of the pandemic.

‘It would also provide materially enhanced solidarity payments to all football stakeholders.’

The Super League also claimed that the withdrawal of the six clubs was due to ‘pressure’ applied over the past 48 hours.

‘Despite the announced departure of the English clubs, forced to take such decisions due to the pressure on them, we are convinced our proposal is fully aligned with European law and regulations as was demonstrated today by a court decision to protect the Super League from third party actions.

‘Given the current circumstances, we shall reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project, always having in mind our goals of offering fans the best experience possible while enhancing solidarity payments for the entire football community.’

Joel Glazer Opens Up On Man Utd’s Transfer Plans This Summer

Published

on

Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer has insisted that the club will invest ‘meaningfully’ in the summer transfer window, and is confident about what the future holds for the Red Devils.

Man Utd are close to agreeing a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, while they have also been linked with moves for Spurs’ Harry Kane and West Ham’s Declan Rice.

Glazer, who United fans seldom hear directly from, confirmed at a recent fans’ forum that the club will invest in the playing squad this summer.

“We’re going to keep investing on the pitch, which we did last year, and we plan on doing it meaningfully this year. So, we feel that we’re in a good spot,” he said, via Man Utd’s website.

Glazer also spoke about the restructuring behind the scenes at the club, which involved John Murtough becoming the director of football with Darren Fletcher appointed as technical director, and how he is confident that the club will end their trophy drought.

“There’s been a tremendous amount of work done behind the scenes and we feel like we’re absolutely on the right track,” Glazer said. “As you all know, we’ve put John Murtough as our first football director, along with Darren Fletcher in there as well. And we feel with them together leading the way, and the work done behind the scenes, that we’re absolutely on the right track.

“Our recruitment process policies, the way we go about it has changed in the last few years, I think we’ve all seen how that has changed. We think we’re absolutely in a position for a lot of success for the future.

“Any other club that has won titles recently had years where they didn’t win the league, then they moved up, they were successful and then everybody appreciates the way their structure is set up. We think we’re on that path. We feel very good about where we are.

“But at the end of the day, we all share the same goal – to win trophies. And we will make sure that everything is being done to put us in the best position to win trophies, we’ll continue to do that. And we think we’ve set up a structure behind the scenes to deliver success.”
