Manchester City has definitely left the Super League project behind it. The Citizens confirmed Tuesday night that they have set in motion a prodecure with which they want to withdraw.
Manchester City was one of the twelve founding fathers, which late Sunday night made the ‘birth’ of the Super League official. In England, however, it was soon said that the current Premier League leader was shocked by all the negative reactions to the plans for the new competition. Meanwhile they are the first to openly turn against the Super League.

Moreover, the team of Pep Guardiola does not have to fear Champions League exclusion, it seems. UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin has embraced The Citizens again. “I am delighted to welcome Manchester City back into the European football family. They have made a wise decision.”
Manchester City will soon play with Paris Saint-Germain to a place in the semi-Champions League final. The French have already turned against the Super League at an earlier stage.
UEFA President Ceferin: “I am delighted to welcome Manchester City back to the European football family. They have shown great intelligence. City are a real asset for the game and I am delighted to be working with them for a better future”. 🔵🚨 #MCFC #SuperLeague
