    European Super League: Manchester City withdraw and Chelsea prepare to follow

    Manchester City have withdrawn from the European Super League (ESL) and Chelsea are also preparing to do so.

    Efforts to leave come just two days after both were announced as two of six English clubs to sign up to the controversial new competition.

    The ESL has been widely criticised since being announced on Sunday.

    Around 1,000 fans gathered outside Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge home ground before their game against Brighton on Tuesday to protest their involvement.

    Chelsea and City were part of English football’s ‘big six’ clubs – alongside Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham – to have agreed to join the new league.

    In total, 12 European clubs announced their intentions to form the breakaway league, which they hoped to establish as a new midweek competition.

    It was condemned by football authorities and government ministers in the UK and across Europe by Uefa and leagues associations.

    Chelsea were the first club to indicate they will not press ahead by preparing documentation to withdrawn. City withdrew soon after.

    Chelsea and City were not drivers of this plan, they were the last to sign and feared being left behind.

    Manchester City posted a statement confirming the news, saying: “Manchester City Football Club can confirm that it has formally enacted the procedures to withdraw from the group developing plans for a European Super League.”

    Arsenal wrote: “We needed no reminding of this but the response from supporters in recent days has given us time for further reflection and deep thought.

    “It was never our intention to cause such distress, however when the invitation to join the Super League came, while knowing there were no guarantees, we did not want to be left behind to ensure we protected Arsenal and its future.

    “As a result of listening to you and the wider football community over recent days we are withdrawing from the proposed Super League. We made a mistake, and we apologise for it.”

    Manchester United said: “Manchester United will not be participating in the European Super League.

    “We have listened carefully to the reaction from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders.

    “We remain committed to working with others across the football community to come up with sustainable solutions to the long-term challenges facing the game.”

    Liverpool said: “Liverpool Football Club can confirm that our involvement in proposed plans to form a European Super League has been discontinued.

    “In recent days, the club has received representations from various key stakeholders, both internally and externally, and we would like to thank them for their valuable contributions.”
