European Super League to consider next steps after English clubs withdraw

Manchester City were the first to confirm their departure from the proposed competition before Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham announced their withdrawals late on Tuesday, with Chelsea announcing their exit in the early hours of Wednesday. Those behind the Super League said it had proposed the new league “because the existing system does not work”.
