All six English teams involved in the Football’s Super League (ESL) have now pulled out of the competition.
Manchester City were the first club to quit. The other five sides – Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham – have all now done the same.
The six English clubs were part of a group that proposed a new Super League which would see the top teams playing each other on a weekly basis. The Super League also included Spain’s Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid and Italy’s AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus.
The new midweek competition would have been a rival Uefa’s Champions League.
However, the new competition was not endorsed by fans or football clubs. Critics also said the move was motivated by greed and making more money for the world’s biggest clubs.
