Cesc Fabregas (Former Arsenal and Chelsea Midfielder star) has given credit to football supporters for their part in the potential collapse of the proposals concerning the European Super League.
All six Premier League teams involved in the European Super League (ESL) have now withdrawn from the competition.
Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal pulled out of the proposed European Super League on Thursday, putting the future of the newly-proposed competition in great uncertainty.
Manchester City confirmed they have “formally enacted the procedures to withdraw” from the Super League.
Liverpool said their involvement in the proposed breakaway league “has been discontinued”.
Manchester United said they had “listened carefully to the reaction from our fans, the UK government and other key stakeholders” in making their decision to not take part.
Arsenal apologized in an open letter to their fans and said they had “made a mistake”, adding they were withdrawing after listening to them and the “wider football community”.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said the club regretted the “anxiety and upset” caused by the proposal.
Chelsea confirmed they have “begun the formal procedures for withdrawal from the group” that they only joined “late last week”.
Italian side Inter Milan are also set to withdraw as they no longer wish to be involved with the project.
Now, Fabregas has lauded football fans for their part in the potential collapse of the proposals, taking to his Twitter page.
He (Fabregas) tweeted: “Well done football fans. This beautiful sport is nothing without you (clapping and love heart emoji).”
