Juventus announce Super League withdrawal: But we still believe in it

Juventus have announced they're withdrawing from the Super League breakaway.

Indeed, the Bianconeri have declared the entire project is over.

Juve said in a statement today: "With regard to the press release published by Juventus Football Club SpA on April 19, 2021, relating to the project to create the Super League, and the public debate that followed, the issuer specifies that it is aware of the request and intentions otherwise expressed by some clubs to withdraw from this project, although the necessary procedures foreseen by the agreement between the clubs have not been completed.

"In this context, Juventus, while remaining convinced of the validity of the sporting, commercial and legal aspects of the project, believe that it is currently unlikely to be carried out in the form in which it was originally conceived. Juventus remain committed to creating long-term value for society and for the whole football movement."
