It looks like the final pieces of the European Super League are collapsing.
As of yesterday, Juventus is beginning the process of pulling out of the European Super League. The Bianconeri were one of the original members of the Super League that was originally announced in 2021.
The original Super League lineup consisted of most of the major clubs throughout Europe. There was considerable backlash from the fans, however, and the majority of the teams stepped back from the idea. The only teams remaining after the initial bail out were Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Juventus had already issued a statement earlier in June stating their intentions to pull out of the project. Now, they have officially filed the paperwork to do so. This should signal the end of the Super League in it’s entirety.
Juve’s decision to pull out of this ill-fated league is a good one, especially considering their current financial situations and club re-tooling.
This decision is a strong one for Juventus. The club has already been penalized for financial mistakes in the last year and has a few seasons of weaker play on the pitch. It’s important that Juventus focuses all of its attention on rebuilding the team’s quality on the pitch. Leaving the Super League and putting that behind them will allow the team’s front office to focus on what matters most: the game itself.
Juve needs to do a lot still to recapture the glory it had a few seasons ago. They should be able to do that now with one less black cloud following them around.
