Spanish and Italian clubs backtrack on plans to go ahead with Super League

Despite the departure of the six English clubs, the Spanish and Italian participants appeared intent on moving forward with the proposed European Super League, but that now looks to be quickly changing.

With the project on the ropes, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Inter and AC Milan were reluctant to put an end to the competition with the clubs releasing statements intending not to give up on the project.

They also pointed out that the six English clubs were forced to leave due to pressure from fans and even the UK government.

“We are convinced that the status quo of European football needs a change and we propose a new competition because the current system does not work properly,” the remaining clubs had written in a statement.

“Our proposal aims to evolve the football industry and generate added value for the entire pyramid.”

“It is, undoubtedly, an excellent opportunity to face the financial difficulties generated by the pandemic, and has been designed with the primary objective of significantly increasing solidarity payments to the entire football family.”

U-turn from Juventus, Inter and Atletico

However, that has all changed on Wednesday morning, as Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, one of the main proponents of the breakaway league, said that the English clubs’ decision will prevent a Super League from being formed.

Shortly before Agnelli‘s comments, Inter also made clear that they would not be pursuing entry to the competition.

And most recently, Atletico Madrid have pulled out.
