Super league breakaway in tatters after English clubs quit
Al Jazeera, 22 Apr 2021
Eight of the 12 members of European football's proposed new Super League have now officially pulled out of the breakaway project after furious calls from fans and officials to withdraw.
Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan followed all six English Premier League clubs in pulling out of the European Super League. AC Milan have signalled they also would follow suit.
UEFA, whose elite Champions League competition was at risk from the proposed new league, had threatened to ban the clubs and players who joined the Super League.
