The European Super League project has been dissolved after it received widespread criticism and backlash from the fans. The project was organized involving 12 ‘big teams’ from Spanish, Italian, and English leagues with the head of the project being Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.
Chelsea and Manchester City were the first clubs to officially pull out of the proposed project and other clubs followed after consistent reaction from fans speaking against the project. Manchester United eventually withdrew from the European Super League but it was followed by the resignation of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has now blasted Manchester United for not apologizing for being a part of such a project in the first place. Rio Ferdinand’s criticism comes after Manchester United released a statement informing the fans that they have pulled out of the European Super League. Rio Ferdinand took to Instagram and posted the statement and wrote a caption;
“Taking the p*** with this. Is that it…”
UEFA have expressed their gratitude after the teams pulled out of the European Super League. This comes after they earlier threatened not to allow players in the European Super League to participate in international matches, including the World Cup and Euros.
