statement

on Sunday.

Manchester United

,

Manchester City

,

Chelsea

,

Arsenal

,

Liverpool

, and

Tottenham

are the six English teams that have agreed to join the new competition. The statement caused great backlash from the football authorities as they threatened the Super League players to be banned from playing in their domestic leagues in addition to international competitions. However, according to

Goal.com

, Manchester United officials have no plans to break away from the Premier League. The Red Devils are confident they can continue their participation in the Premier League despite the potential legal battles. The Premier League published an official statement on Sunday regarding their views about the breakaway competition.

“The Premier League is proud to run a competitive and compelling football competition that has made it the most widely watched league in the world. Our success has enabled us to make an unrivalled financial contribution to the domestic football pyramid.

“A European Super League will undermine the appeal of the whole game, and have a deeply damaging impact on the immediate and future prospects of the Premier League and its member clubs, and all those in football who rely on our funding and solidarity to prosper.”

The Super League matches are planned to be played midweek and the participants are free to play their domestic league matches during the weekend.
