The European Super League has died a natural death, after the Big Six Premier League clubs decided to pull out of the proposed project.
The ESL had claimed that it was here to save football, but after receiving massive backlash from fans, media and even the government, the clubs had seen enough to turn their back on the ESL project.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin had branded the founding members of the European Super League as greedy, and was livid with the clubs’ decisions to break away from the ECA to join the ESL.
But after returning back to status quo, Ceferin has moved to accept the clubs and revealed that no sanctions will be taken. He hailed the clubs for accepting their mistakes and claimed that they will work things out for the future.
“I said yesterday that it is admirable to admit a mistake and these clubs made a big mistake,” Ceferin said in a statement.
“But they are back in the fold now and I know they have a lot to offer not just to our competitions but to the whole of the European game.
“The important thing now is that we move on, rebuild the unity that the game enjoyed before this and move forward together.”
