Andrea Agnelli, Juventus president and one of the founders of the idea of ​​the European Super League project, admitted the failure of the project.

The six English clubs withdrew from the tournament on Tuesday, with the nascent venture on the edge of a precipice.

Anelli said in statements published by Sky Sports that the Super League project will not continue after the withdrawal of 6 English clubs.

Anneli added about the possibility of reviving the project: “To be frank and honest, no, it is clear that this will not be the case.”

The European Super League Clubs League issued an official statement in the early hours of Wednesday morning, commenting on current events after the failure of the tournament idea.

The statement read as follows:

The European Super League clubs are convinced that the current state of European football needs to change.

We are presenting a new competition because the current system does not work well, our goal is to develop sport and create strong resources for the entire football pyramid and to overcome the material difficulties resulting from the Corona pandemic, in addition to creating a state of solidarity with all stakeholders in football.

Although English clubs announced their departure from the tournament due to pressures placed on them, we are convinced that the goal of the tournament is in line with European laws, as evidenced today by a court decision to protect the European Super League from third-party actions.

Given the current circumstances, we will try to reconfigure the project with a view to providing the best possible experience to the public while preserving solidarity payments to stakeholders.

The idea that began with the presence of 12 clubs, six of which have already withdrawn, are the English teams Manchester United, City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Meanwhile, press reports stated that Milan and Inter are on their way to withdraw.

Thus, only Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Atletico Madrid and Juventus remain in the tournament so far.
