This is the new twist of the evening. Less than 48 hours after the announcement of the creation of the Super League, several clubs are already on the verge of leaving the project according to English and Spanish media.
Faced with this probable implosion of the Super League, the reactions have been numerous on social networks.
In England, the consultants who strongly criticized the project were happy to hear rumors of Manchester City and Chelsea withdrawals. Gary Lineker, former player and iconic BBC Match of the Day presenter, tweeted: “We got our ball back”
Former Manchester United player and Sky Sports consultant Gary Neville treated him to a small glass of Super League health wine.
Former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher went even further by posting a photo of a gravestone with the epitaph: “European Super League, born April 18, 2021, died April 20, 2021.”
Jan Vertonghen, meanwhile, could not help laughing at the reactions of Internet users on social networks: “Twitter is gold right now”
On a much more serious tone, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcomed this turnaround: “The decision of Chelsea and Manchester City, if it is confirmed, is absolutely the right one and I congratulate them. I hope that other clubs involved in the European Super League will follow their example. “
