Manchester City have officially enacted a move away from the European Super League (ESL) and Chelsea are also preparing to do so.

It comes after their manager Pep Guardiola criticised the idea of a Super League at a press conference earlier in the day.

He said: “If you ask me [why] these teams have been selected, I don’t know the reason why.

"It is not a sport where the relation between the effort and the success, the effort and the reward, does not exist. It is not a sport where success is already guaranteed or it is not a sport when it doesn’t matter where you lose.
