Two days after its formation, the European Super League seems to be dead in the water. Starting with 12 Founding Clubs (AC Milan, Arsenal FC, Atlético de Madrid, Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona, FC Internazionale Milano, Juventus FC, Liverpool FC, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid CF and Tottenham Hotspur), the breakaway European competition is now down to just a few remaining clubs.

This evening, all six Premier League clubs involved in the competition; Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham, and Liverpool withdrew and rejoined the European Club Association meaning that they will be able to compete in UEFA sanctioned competitions. 

 In the statement released by the 12 clubs, they said they will work with FIFA and UEFA to form a partnership saying, 

"Going forward, the Founding Clubs look forward to holding discussions with UEFA and FIFA to work together in partnership to deliver the best outcomes for the new League and for football as a whole."

However, it appears that hoping for a compromise was not enough as the league has reportedly been suspended. Sky Italia have reported that the Super League has been suspended. 

Now, Fabrizio Romano has said that the Super League is officially suspended.

Liverpool FC, who withdrew from the competition just hours ago, released a short official statement saying that they have been removed from the European Super League. 

"Liverpool Football Club can confirm that our involvement in proposed plans to form a European Super League has been discontinued.

In recent days, the club has received representations from various key stakeholders, both internally and externally, and we would like to thank them for their valuable contributions."
