Super League collapses: Manchester United withdraw
It is all over already. The Super League has collapsed completely.
Manchester United have officially withdrawn. All English clubs are set to leave.
This follows a huge campaign from football fans across the country and on social media, led by pundits including our own Gary Neville, and with players stepping up.
The club have now confirmed the decision.
The statement read: “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.”
Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw were among those to make their opposition known.
And now added into the mix, we have the added bonus of Ed Woodward announcing his resignation.
Tonight has been a whirlwind of news akin to deadline day, without the last minute Woodward transfers.
The Super League plans were doomed from the very start. You simply cannot have an exclusive football league operating like a cartel, without qualification. It defies the principals of the sport.
The organisers are finding out the hard way, and learning a lesson that fans hold the real power.
