Masters: Super League Six Must Rebuild Trust With Rest of PL

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters admits there has been a breakdown of trust and relations between the six clubs involved in proposed Super League and the rest of the division. Masters believes it will take time for that trust to be restored between Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham who were involved in the attempted breakaway and the remainder of the league. He says the Premier League will work with the Football Association to "bolster their rule book" and prevent any future threat of a breakaway, while outlining his aim to "reset" the division. The Premier League CEO sat down with Sky Sports News' Bryan Swanson to discuss the fallout from the failed Super League, what the proposed new TV deal could mean in the post-pan...

Juventus Faces Threat of Expulsion from Serie A

  President of the Italian football federation (FIGC), Gabriele Gravina, has said Juventus face being kicked out of Serie A if they don’t withdraw from the European Super League. AC Milan and Inter Milan have backed out of the breakaway competition, leaving Juventus as the only Italian club persisting with the plans. “The rules are clear. If Juventus is still part of the Super League when it enters next season, it can’t participate in Serie A. “I would be sorry for the fans but rules are rules and they apply to everyone. I hope this holdout ends soon,” Gravina told Naples radio station Kiss Kiss. Juventus won Serie A for the ninth straight year last season, but have since relinquished the title to Inter.

Man Utd Owner Refuses to Apologise Over Super League

A member of the American family that owns Manchester United has refused to apologise to fans over the disastrous attempt to form a breakaway European Super League. Sky News US correspondent Sally Lockwood caught up with Avram Glazer in Florida and offered him the chance to address supporters' concerns, saying: "This an opportunity for you - an apology perhaps?" Mr Glazer was then asked if it was time for his family to sell the club, and if United fans were "just customers to you". He was also asked if he had anything to say to the supporters. But, after buying some groceries, Mr Glazer, in sunglasses, refused to engage and drove off without saying anything.

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane and defender Raphael Varane have played down fears they could face biased refereeing against Chelsea, because of their European Super League involvement. The two teams clash in the Champions League semi-final first leg on Tuesday evening at the Bernabeu. This comes a week after Los Blancos president, Florentino Perez, tried to lead 12 clubs to create a breakaway competition to rival the Champions League.

How Werner Dealt a Hammer Blow in Top-four Race

West Ham's surprise top-four challenge this season will have no doubt strengthened desires for the 'big six' to breakaway to an exclusive European competition, with these two sides arriving on equal points with just six games remaining. Chelsea had some joy down the right early on as Werner turned Mason Mount's cross over the bar from 12 yards, before Christian Pulisic struck Werner's own low centre into the hands of Lukasz Fabianski. Chelsea had all of the ball, as expected, but were shut out by West Ham, who were keen to soak up pressure and counter-attack at every opportunity; in every home game against top-half opposition, David Moyes' side have had less than 40 per cent possession. But Chelsea scored against the run of play in a move started and finished by Werner, who no...

The Reds boss' heart may have been in the right place, but many feel that the German trainer has missed the point. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been branded “spectacularly tone deaf” by former Tottenham and Barcelona striker Gary Lineker, with the former having told the press to “calm down” in the wake of the European Super League fallout. Fans and pundits reacted furiously to the news of a proposed breakaway project announced on Sunday, only for the six English clubs involved to pull out 48 hours later. Klopp stated his belief that the outrage must be curbed somewhat since the announcement that the 'Bix Six' would no longer be taking part, suggesting that continuing to fan the flames of protest could lead to a rise in coronavirus cases.
