The proposed European Super League is “not going anywhere” as the proposed rival to the Champions League falls over just three days after its announcement, says CNN World Sports host Don Riddell. “I don’t think it’s official yet but it’s not going anywhere, or at least it’s not going anywhere right now,” he told Sky News.
“There’s been talk about a breakaway super league for years and years and years but this was kind of the first time anybody had actually said it’s happening.”
Mr. Riddell said the European Super League had some “huge names” attached to it and caused “widespread panic among the established leagues” such as UEFA and received immense backlash.
“The outcry was absolutely profound, and I don’t think anybody can quite believe that so quickly it’s all over.”
