Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher hailed an “incredible” moment for football as plans for a controversial European Super League lay in tatters on Tuesday evening.

All six Premier League teams - Manchester Uited, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City - were among the 12 founding members to controversially announce proposals for a new tournament on Sunday evening, but have now pulled out of the proposals after less than 48 hours following a storm of criticism.

Neville declared the European Super League was over when he appeared on Sky Sports after Chelsea’s draw with Brighton at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea fans had led protests against the Super League plans outside the stadium.

Neville said: “It’s absolutely incredible. There was large concern yesterday morning as a Manchester United fan thinking Joel Glazer put his name on a statement - you thought it’s going to be difficult to back down.

“But City have enacted withdrawal proceedings and Chelsea are doing the same. It’s gone, done!”
