First domino falls as City makes statement

The first domino has officially fallen tonight after Manchester City makes a statement that it will pull out of the European Super League.

City posted a short statement on their club website to say “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.”

Chelsea is set to follow suit as fans protested outside Stamford Bridge tonight and Manchester United are reported to joining them after executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward resigned this evening.

The other ‘founders’ of the European Super League are now set to follow suit and back down, with a meeting taking place on Tuesday night between the 12 clubs when it is expected they will accept their bold bid to shake-up the game is over.

The new European league has been universally condemned by fans and the project has backfired on the greedy twelve tarnishing their reputations.

What a mad 48 hours in football it has been, lets see what the next 24 hours hold.

  1. Never before has the game been brought into such utter disrepute. Let’s hope the prem act accordingly against the 6 clubs in utter disgrace. “We got it wrong” is not an acceptable defence. “We tried it on” is more like it. Shame on them.
