The president of one of the founding clubs of the separatist European Super League said the project could not go ahead.
Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has said the league is no longer viable after the six English clubs involved withdrew on Tuesday night.
When asked if the project could still come to fruition after the releases, Agnelli replied: “To be frank and honest no, it obviously doesn’t.”
Agnelli said he remains convinced that European football needs a change and has no regrets about how the breakaway attempt was made.
“I remain convinced of the beauty of this project,” he said, adding that he would have created the best competition in the world.
“But sure… I mean, I don’t think this project is operational yet,” he said.
Last night (April 20), Chelsea Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United withdrew from the controversial contest, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcoming the outings.
Manchester United Executive Vice President Ed woodward resigned last night, as the Liverpool owner John Henry apologized to fans, Jurgen Klopp and players for the failed Super League bid.
