Two Premier League clubs, Chelsea and Manchester City have reportedly decided to pull out of the Champions League. According to BBC, Chelsea are preparing documentation to request their withdrawal.
The ESL has been widely criticised since being announced on Sunday. Around 1,000 fans gathered outside Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge before their game against Brighton on Tuesday to protest their involvement.
A few minutes later, it has been claimed, that City have told organisers they no longer want to be part of the £4.6billion scheme.
