In less than 48 hours since announcing that they would be taking part in the ESL European Super League, Manchester United have withdrawn from the competition.
The backlash from everyone involved in football was unlike anything the country has ever seen with pundits, media, fans and everyone else taking a firm stance on the idea that this should not go ahead. With this the club released this short announcement
Manchester United will not be participating in the European Super League. We have listened carefully to the reaction from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders. We remain committed to working with others across the football community to come up with sustainable solutions to the long-term challenges facing the game.
In what can be described as a victory for the fans, many are now looking at the people behind the proposals, the executives and owners of the club with the idea of getting them to be removed. Whilst anti- Glazer has been apart of the club for many seasons, the next season coming up will be more than ever. It is expected that fans will voice their opinions louder than ever before with marches already being planned.
In news that shocked world football on Sunday, the plan was to leave the UEFA Champions League for a league in which no team can be relegated. Even Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated that he would do everything in his power to stop the plans.
What do you think of how Manchester United have handled the situation?
