Manchester City confirmed on Tuesday night that they will be withdrawing from the European Super League, which promoted a positive response from pundit and ex-player Micah Richards on Twitter.
The last 48 hours has been a frantic experience for the entire footballing world.
Man City were one of 12 clubs that announced on Sunday night the plans for a proposed European Super League, and it received massive frustration from supporters globally.
They were joined by Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus as the proposed founding clubs.
However, just two days later it seems like plans may be stopped in their traps before they’ve barely begun.
Man City have announced on their official website that procedures have commenced for them to withdraw from developing plans for a European Super League.
Additionally, BBC reports that Chelsea are also expected to follow suit.
Richards expressed his joy towards the confirmed Man City update:
Better late than never 💙💙💙💙💙💙 well done to all the fans who voiced their opinions. Ctid https://t.co/yGifF9l8vC

If all the breaking news on Tuesday night is anything to go by, then the European Super League will be nothing more than a fantasy that once existed.
There are going to be concerns though until there is official confirmation across the board.
Man City supporters, such as Richards, can breathe a big sigh of relief that they want to withdraw from any potential tournament that fans are totally against for a barrage of reasons.
