Man United were one of the 12 clubs who enrolled to be a part of the European Super League, including the Big Six in the Premier League. As you may well have heard over the past 24 hours, it’s fast unravelled.
The Red Devils issued a short statement yesterday evening confirming that they would no longer be participating in the European Super League, and that executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward would be stepping down.
On Wednesday afternoon, Joel Glazer then had his say in the form of a statement which was published on the official Manchester United website.
“You made very clear your opposition to the European Super League, and we have listened. We got it wrong, and we want to show that we can put things right.” (read the full statement here)
