The nine clubs founders of the Superliga that to the dessert arrepintieron, between them the Athletic of Madrid, have stepped more in the back strategy to his exit of the project. The teams that took the decision to abandon the ship of the project of the Superliga, have signed an agreement vinculante to be readmitidos by the Association of European Clubs (ECA), chaired in these moments by Nasser To the Khelaifi (president of Paris Saint-Germain). The clubs in question are Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea, AC Milan, Inter of Milan and Athletic.

Like this it announced it the association: "In his decision, and after an exhaustive process of reintegration by part of the clubs and reevaluación by part of ECA during the last months, the Executive Board of ECA took in consideration the recognition of the Clubs that the project of the designated Superliga European ("Project ESL") was not in the interests of the community futbolística in general and his decisions communicated publicly to abandon said project completely".

"The managerial board of the ECA also recognised the will declared of the clubs to engage actively with the ECA in his collective mission to develop the European football of clubs, in the open and transparent interest of all, no of some. This decision of the Managerial Board of the ECA marks the end of a regrettable and turbulent episode for the European football and ranges with the incessant approach of the ECA to strengthen the unit in the European football", finalised the announcement.


After signing this agreement, does more complicated his set off for external projects and to the margin of ECA and UEFA as it is the one of the Superliga, in whose ship follow for the moment the others three founders: Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Juventus. The UEFA already loomed with sanctioning them and even opened a file, although all has remained in the air for the moment by a car of the court of the Mercantile number 7 of Madrid, that forces to the European Court to take a decision on if there is monopoly of the UEFA with the competitions or if it can create another freely.

Afterwards of the bomb that supposed the announcement of the Superliga, Andrea Agnelli, by then president of the ECA, left immediately his charge and east happened to hands of To the Khelaifi, that was one of the most favoured by the turbulences of the European football. The recovery by part of the ECA of nine of the dissident clubs is another advance in his interests, although arrived the case that the European Court failed in favour of the Superliga, would subtract to see the conclusive that will be the legal links that now allow them reintegrarse.
