Liverpool out of European Super League

Liverpool have ended their involvement in the European Super League

Premier League clubs Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham joined Real Madrid, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Juventus 
as part of the founding clubs for the proposed European Super League.

Unlike the Champions League, which teams must qualify for, the ESL would include the same 15 teams every year, with the remaining five qualifying annually.

Critics say the move is being driven purely by money, would destroy domestic leagues and is against the integrity of the sport.

And now, after heavy backlash against the proposed competition, the Reds have decided to move out.

A statement released by the club reads: "Liverpool Football Club can confirm that our involvement in proposed plans to form a European Super League has been discontinued. In recent days, the club has received representations from various key stakeholders, both internally and externally, and we would like to thank them for their valuable contributions."
