Inter Rumored to Be Only Team that Fully Left Super League

Inter are the only ones that formally bowed out of the Super League out of the 12 founding teams. Despite the chatter, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli did not launch a new version of the competition in the recent Financial Times Business of Football Summit. However, he hinted that 11 clubs are still part of the project.

The English sides, Atletico Madrid and Milan quickly backtracked after the announcement due to the fierce backlash. On the other hand, they have yet to take the formal steps to rescind the binding contracts, which include hefty penalties. Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus have continued fighting against the UEFA monopoly through the European judiciary system. They have been able to notch some wins.

According to Spanish outlets Marca and COPE, Inter are officially out of the Super League. They had a special release clause that allowed them to abandon the cup if their new sponsors did not greenlight the proposal. That has been the case afterward, without much fanfare.

CEO Giuseppe Marotta refused to comment on the topic while talking to Sky before the Salernitana game: “There was a strong debate last summer about the Super League, and Inter made clear statements. There will be a time to revisit it. We are focused on our sports objectives now. We are working to make the club more sustainable despite the problems stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. I do not want to give a precise answer right now. We will tackle these delicate matters in more opportune seats.”
