Boris Johnson applauds the withdrawal of the ‘Big Six’

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, described this Wednesday as a “correct result” the abandonment by English clubs of the Super League project. Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham, the ‘Big Six’ of English football, were among the 12 founders of the Super League but on Tuesday they announced their withdrawal from the project.

“I salute the announcement last night. It is the right result for soccer fans, clubs and communities across the country,” said Boris Johnson on his Twitter account. The other six founding clubs are Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Atlético, Juventus, Milan and Inter (which, according to Suning sources, will also be retiring).

The prime minister of the United Kingdom, who had announced on Tuesday that he did not rule out taking some measure to prevent the Super League from going ahead, added that it will be important “to continue protecting our beloved national sport.”

All English clubs abandon the Super League project, a project that was announced late on Sunday.

Manchester City were the first to make their withdrawal official on Tuesday afternoon, after it was leaked that Chelsea would abandon the project. Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur will not continue with the Super League either.
