Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have all been forced into a humbling U-turn after receiving intense criticism
That is not all, according to British newspaper, Daily Mirror, the Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has reportedly contacted executives at the ‘big six’ clubs to request they relinquish their positions on the league’s sub-committes.
Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham shook the footballing world to its core earlier this week, when they announced they had agreed to join the controversial European Super League.
Had the tournament been approved, it would have effectively replaced the current UEFA European competitions, setting up a closed shop at the top of the continent’s game.
After Sunday’s announcement, the six English clubs received universal criticism, with governing bodies, rival clubs and supporters all voicing their displeasure.
