“Reshape the project”
Faced with threats brandished by national and international federations, English clubs have already indicated their withdrawal. The announcement of this new competition on Sunday evening sparked much indignation, both from supporters and players in the world of football. Manchester City coach, initially a member of this Super League, Pep Guardiola on Tuesday gave a plea against this semi-closed league project.
“Despite the announced departure of the English clubs, forced to take such decisions due to the pressure exerted on them, we are convinced that our proposal is fully in line with European legislation and regulations as was demonstrated on Tuesday by a decision of justice aimed at protecting the Super League from third-party action, the Super League statement continued. Given the current circumstances, we will reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project, always aiming to offer fans the best possible experience while improving solidarity payments for all of football. “
This Tuesday evening, Inter Milan announced through the Italian press agency “no longer to be interested” in this project under the current circumstances. AC Milan should also withdraw soon, while the Spanish press suggests that Atlético de Madrid will also make the same decision soon.
