All the six Premier League clubs have finally withdrawn from the European Super League they had agreed to be part of this week.
Liverpool and Manchester United – the two iconic Premier League clubs – have received a massive backlash from the fans, pundits, journalists, while players and the managers of the respective clubs have shared their stance as well.
John Henry, the Liverpool owner, has delivered an emotional message where he took all the blame on himself for tarnishing the club’s image.
However, many Reds fans feel that it is just another PR move, while journalists like Oliver Holt has suggested that the Reds owner has yet got no clue about the severity of the damage he has done to the club.
Former Liverpool player turned football pundit Jamie Carragher has suggested that FSG – Fenway Sports Group – have ‘no future’ at the club following the latest controversy.
Carragher finds it hard to believe that FSG can continue here for the long term.

Likewise, Gary Neville, another Sky Sports pundit, has claimed that the Glazers family have no place in Manchester.
Yesterday, the club confirmed that Ed Woodward will leave the club at the end of the season. Neville feels that Woodward ‘knew his time in football was finished’ amid the collapse of plans for a Super League.
Neville insisted that Glazers will find it difficult to come back from the failed European Super League.
Neville said to Sky Sports:
“We obviously don’t know why the timing is now,” Neville said of Woodward’s departure.
“The leeches could have thrown him under a bus, there’s no doubt about that. Or it could have been that the sensible thing has happened that Ed Woodward knew it was going to get pretty hot in the kitchen for him in the next few months and he needed to get out of there.
“The fact of the matter is, not just Ed Woodward, every single executive who goes and sits at the Premier League table, every single executive who is on these UEFA or FIFA committees, they need throwing out of that club because there is no way they can turn up again and be trusted.”
