Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has confirmed the European Super League is all but dead.

All six Premier League clubs involved in the project officially withdrew last night, leaving Inter, AC Milan and Juventus to hold emergency talks with their La Liga counterparts Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

The remaining clubs published a hasty statement last night in which they vowed to ‘reshape’ the project, but now it seems the plans have collapsed.

Agnelli told Reuters today that the Super League project ‘can no longer progress’ after the Premier League clubs exited the scene.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham all came under intense scrutiny from fans, pundits, politicians and employees after announcing their involvement in the Super League on Sunday night.

Eventually they were pressured into pulling out, with Arsenal apologising for having made ‘a mistake’.

Agnelli also told Reuters that he ‘remained convinced of the beauty’ of the Super League project, but it won’t be going anywhere for the time being.
