CorSport: Why Milan dropped out of Super League project – the risks of staying

By Isak Möller -

The European Super League didn’t last for long, causing outrage in the football community, as nine of the 12 founding clubs have now officially left. Milan are one of them and the reasoning behind it is clear. 

According to Corriere Dello Sport, as cited by MilanNews, the Rossoneri reflected on the risks of the Super League after the English clubs decided to leave. They established that it wasn’t worth the risks, with UEFA completely against the project.

The best they could do was leave when a deal was still on the table, instead of going down the route of legal battles over the legitimacy of the Super League. In the end, therefore, the ownership decided to project the club.

It would have been very harmful to remain and it remains to be seen what repercussions Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid will face. The three are still in the competition and are gearing up for the legal battle.
