This must have been the biggest news in the football world right now; almost all the teams who were supposed to be in the European Super League have withdrawn themselves from the competition including the six Premier League clubs.
As soon as the news of the European Super League came out, football fans all around the world broke into protests. It was a very scary news, which could potentially kill football forever.
European Super League Suspended? All 6 Premier League Clubs Withdrawn Their Names From Tournament
The protest of the fans was so massive that clubs have to give apological statements to the fans. Chelsea fans were seen protesting outside of the Stamford Bridge as Liverpool fans protested outside of Anfield in a more brutal way. Fans of the other clubs also protested physically, the backlash was really high.
Chelsea and Manchester City were the first two Premier League clubs to withdraw their names from this tournament. Followed by Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs. Arsenal is the first American-owned club to withdraw from this tournament.
Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid is still very much involved in this tournament. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez would have been the chairman of the European Super League if happened, and he is still very much hopeful of the tournament being placed.
Perez was asked by El Chiringuito if the players and the clubs would be banned from UEFA competitions if they join European Super League, “Every player can be calm because that’s not going to happen. They won’t be banned if they join the Super League.”
He added, “Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea will not be banned from the Champions League or domestic leagues. Impossible, I can assure you of that. 100 per cent, it won’t happen, the law protects us. This is impossible.”

Now it would be interesting to see Perez’s reaction after all the Premier League backed out of the tournament.
This can be considered a victory for football fans and the world of football. We will not go to any controversies about the idea of this tournament was right or wrong, but if this is canceled, that is only because of the fans and the fans only. This is an example to the world that unity can still conquer any threat.
We hope the idea of this tournament gets scrapped completely. And we believe this could actually destroy football forever.
