AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan Withdraw From European Super League

Another one bites the dust: Italy's AC Milan has now followed in the footsteps of its Milanese rival, Inter, and has quit the newly created European Super League, according to a statement from the club.

"The voices and the concerns of fans around the world have clearly been expressed about the Super League, and AC Milan must be sensitive to the voice of those who love this wonderful sport."

Atletico Madrid Football Club has also officially announced it is withdrawing from the breakaway European Super League - a project which was unveiled officially by 12 European football clubs only two days ago.

After Atletico released its statement, Italian team Inter Football Club from Milan announced that it will no longer participate in the scheme.

"We are always committed to giving fans the best football experience; innovation and inclusion are part of our DNA since our foundation. Our engagement with all stakeholders to improve the football industry will never change," the statement read. 

There are now only three teams left in the ESL - Italy's Juventus, and Spain's Barcelona and Real Madrid. Earlier, one of the league’s biggest fans, Real Madrid president, Florentino Pérez, said in an interview with French sports news site, L'Equipe, that he was not worried about the clubs leaving the league adding that Germany's Bayern Munich and France's PSG - the two clubs that initially refused to joined the breakaway league - would join the project eventually.

The five other English clubs were not long in following suit and Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal all swiftly announced their withdrawal.
