League vice-chairman Andrea Agnelli has said the idea is no longer viable after the six Premier League clubs pulled out of talks on Tuesday
Juventus chairman Agnelli told Reuters that the proposal is no longer viable after the six Premier League clubs withdrew on Tuesday evening.
Twelve founding members had joined up to the breakaway tournament late on Sunday night but the move caused fury with fans, media and politicians all getting involved in a bid to stop it from going ahead.
Just 48 hours after the announcement, the Super League was officially suspended after all six Premier League clubs formally withdrew from their commitments – Manchester City and Chelsea first, then Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham.
Asked whether the project could still happen after the exits, Agnelli told Reuters: ‘To be frank and honest no, evidently that is not the case.’
The Premier League Big Six’s decision to pull out from the Super League meant that only six clubs were left standing – Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
But on Wednesday morning Inter Milan reportedly became the latest European side to pull the plug on their commitments to the controversial project.
