Reports: Woodward and Agnelli leave Man Utd and Juve as Super League is set to be called off

By Oliver Fisher -

Just 48 hours after it was announced, the European Super League has pretty much completely fallen apart, according to reports.

On Sunday night, 12 leading European clubs announced that they had created a new competition to replace the Champions League, with Milan, Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona among them.

The Rossoneri 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.

As per Fabrizio Romano, Ed Woodward has resigned as Manchester United executive vice chairman because of the Super League situation. Manchester City and Chelsea have the intention to leave the League and are preparing with their legal teams.

The New York Times report that Barcelona have now joined Atletico Madrid in withdrawing from the Super League out of the LaLiga clubs. Meanwhile, InfiniteMadrid are claiming that Andrea Agnelli has resigned as Juventus president.

Meanwhile, TalkSport have tweeted the following: “The European Super League is OFF.”
