The fallout from the proposed Super League – which involved some of Europe’s biggest clubs – has continued this week.
12 clubs – including English clubs Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur – signed up to the breakaway competition, which was first announced on April 18.
Two days later, however, all of the English clubs, as well as Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan all withdrew, and the plans collapsed.
And whilst debate goes on within English football about what punishments – if any at all – there’s already been some action taken both at domestic and European level.
Here’s a look at which key fixtures have stepped down following the collapse of the Super League last week:
Club representatives leave European Club Association
Following the announcement of the Super League, all 12 clubs left their positions within the European Club Association.
Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward left his position as a board member of UEFA’s Professional Football Strategy Council.
Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli resigned as ECA chairman, and was replaced by Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi. PSG were not part of the Super League plans.
Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, whose club also was not involved, has asked to be a mediator between UEFA, FIFA and the 12 Super League clubs.
Key executives leave Premier League roles
Executives from the six English clubs involved in the Super League have resigned from advisory roles with the Premier League since the plans collapsed.
The Premier League’s chief executive Richard Masters had asked them to step down.
That means that Liverpool’s Tom Werner, Manchester United’s Ed Woodward, Manchester City’s Ferran Soriano, Arsenal’s Vinai Venkatesham and Chelsea’s Bruce Buck have all left their roles in Premier League sub-committees.
Woodward, meanwhile, announced he would be stepping down as United vice-chairman at the end of 2021 on the day that the English clubs withdrew from the Super League.
