The breakaway European Super League looks to be over after a dramatic sequence of withdrawals from all six Premier League clubs involved led founder Andrea Agnelli to admit that it could no longer happen.

European Super League founder and Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli has conceded that the breakaway league can no longer go ahead after the Premier League's six members withdrew on Tuesday night.

A statement from the Super League overnight said that they would "reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project", but the Juventus chairman and one of the key driving forces behind the attempted breakaway has admitted that it cannot continue - though the Italian remains "convinced of the beauty", stating it would have been the best competition in the world.
