Reports: Pressure mounts on Milan as Atletico, Chelsea and City drop out of Super League

By Isak Möller -

The Super League was announced late on Sunday evening but it seems it might be thing of the past already, as several of the founding clubs are now ready to leave. In other words, the backlash from the fans is starting to show. 

Milan, along with 11 other teams, are considered as one of the founders of the Super League and CEO Ivan Gazidis praised the concept just a few hours ago. However, as a result of heavy criticism, several clubs are now ready to back out.

According to Daily Telegraph’s Matt Law, following the protests by the fans this evening, Chelsea are preparing the legal documents to withdraw from the Super League. The same goes for Man City, as was revealed by BBC’s Dan Roan.

It doesn’t end there, however, as Ben Jacobs is reporting that Atletico Madrid will drop out of the competition as well. Meanwhile, Barcelona will leave the decision to their socios (their supporters), according to president Joan Laporta (via tv3cat).

The pressure is mounting on Milan, in other words, and according to TalkSport there will be a meeting between all of the Super League clubs tonight. They will discuss disbanding the competition, per the report.

    We should stay by our decision if we do not change things they won’t change for us.

    But what exactly do you want to change?? The only change will come if you plan your strategy right and play good enough football. Where is the satisfaction in earning your spot in the limelight? Where is excitement of playing against a team in the bottom of the table and losing? Where is the thing we call and know as Football/Sport? All down the toilet because of a few blood dollars

    Well, why do i feel the whole Super League idea was a ploy just to make UEFA raise the amount of money given to clubs, well i still see Milan benefiting, because I believe the Champions League remittances to clubs will increase significantly, we just need to qualify first.

    They knew it wouldn’t work, they just wanted to prove a point, believe me, a lot of shifting grounds is already being done by UEFA, football is big business and I think these big clubs know better, they know they can earn more in Champions League money.

    As always, Milan till the fu**ing casket!
