After the withdrawal of six English clubs and at the same time as Atlético de Madrid, it is now up to Italy to start the back-pedaling with the withdrawal of Inter Milan.
The domino effect continues. After Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United, Inter Milan announced on Wednesday April 21 to withdraw from the Super League project in a press release.
“FC Internazionale Milano confirm that the club is no longer part of the Super League project”, explained the club in a communicated remembering that “Inter believes that football, like any industry, must have an interest in constantly improving its competitions, to continue to excite fans of all ages around the world, within a framework of financial sustainability”.
A decision mainly taken following the renunciation of the English clubs and the various threats put in place by international and European bodies, in particular that of a possible exclusion from the national championship. Currently at the top of Serie A with nine points ahead of its pursuer, Inter is on track to clinch an Italian league title, eleven years after the last coronation obtained in 2010 and therefore seems to have regained reason. What will happen to other Italian clubs? Will AC Milan and Juventus also back down?
