AC Milan, Inter Milan, Atletico Walk Away From European Super League

Inter, Atletico Madrid and AC Milan have announced their intention to walk away from the proposed European Super League.

On Sunday, 12 of Europe’s elite clubs were named founding members of the breakaway project, designed to rival the UEFA Champions League.

However, only two days passed before things started to unravel, with all six of the Premier League clubs involved pulling out on Tuesday.

Inter released a statement which read in part: “FC Internazionale Milano confirm that the club is no longer part of the Super League project.”

Part of Atletico’s statement read: “The Atletico de Madrid board of directors, meeting this Wednesday morning, has decided to formally communicate to the Super League and the rest of the founding clubs its decision not to formalise its adherence to the project finally.”

As of Wednesday morning, only Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus have yet to formally communicate that they too will no longer take part in the project.

Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli, one of the main figures in the Super League saga, admitted defeat on Wednesday, stating that they “evidently” can’t continue with it.
