Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has revealed that he received a personal apology from the owners of the club over the events concerning the failed attempt at creating a breakaway ‘European Super League’.

The owners of the so-called ‘top six’ Premier League clubs – Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea – had agreed on the idea under a considerable veil of secrecy, with managers and players later revealing they knew nothing, or very little, about the things that went on behind the scenes.

The plans to establish the so-called European Super League have been shelved following the withdrawal of all six Premier League clubs from the project.

It’s been a hectic few days for everyone involved, most notably the players and the fans of all six clubs, who all stood up admirably in opposing the idea. Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson had called for a meeting of all Premier League captains to discuss further steps to stop the change from happening for which now, thankfully, there’s no need.

As for Arsenal, they’ve apologized through an open letter to the fans, stressing that their withdrawal from the project came as a result of the passionate protests.

As you probably know by now, Arsenal are one of the 12 clubs who took the decision to join the European Super League project, named as the founders of the controversially announced new competition.

The decision to do this has already caused worldwide criticism, with practically every entity within the game outside the 12 clubs fiercely criticising the idea. Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is the only Premier League manager to have spoken to the press since, and he was rather coy about his views. He said neither he nor his players weren’t told about it beforehand, and merely insisted that it’s their job to focus on football and the games ahead.

In one of the most seismic moments in football history, last night we had confirmation from 12 clubs across the European landscape that they will be joining the European Super League as part of a breakaway from the Champions League – and now, perhaps also the domestic leagues as well.

There’s a very good chance they could be banned from those competitions as well as international tournaments, and unfortunately, Arsenal are part of this equation.

It’s a desperately sad day for football, as we all know, with releasing the following statement as the world attempts to get its head around what this means for the beautiful game.

Arsenal will not break away from the English Premier League, despite showing an interest in joining a European Super League in the near future.

News that discussions over a 16-team Super League were in the pipeline has raised many questions. German football magazine Der Spiegel had claimed that English clubs, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal were all set to sign up for the aforementioned Super League.

Any formation of the reported European Super League would seriously interfere with the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.
