European Super League all but dead after nine of 12 teams withdraw

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “European Super League all but dead after nine of 12 teams withdraw” – below is their description.

Shunned by fans, threatened by regulators and now abandoned by its founding teams.

Last night we thought the European Super League was all over; it is now, just three days after it was announced.

All six of the English clubs to have signed up have withdrawn. Liverpool’s owner has issued an abject apology, whilst Manchester United’s vice chairman has announced he is stepping down.

So what next for football?
