Only mere days after its birth, the Super League is done. With the exits of all six English clubs, the ESL crumbled as quickly as it was built and is now nothing more than a pipe dream. Inter is the latest to announce its exit from the now-defunct league with a statement released Wednesday.

MILAN - FC Internazionale Milano confirm that the Club is no longer part of the Super League project.

We are always committed to giving fans the best football experience; innovation and inclusion are part of our DNA since our foundation. Our engagement with all stakeholders to improve the football industry will never change.

Inter believes that football, like every sector of activity, must have an interest in constantly improving its competitions, to keep on exciting fans of all ages around the world, within a framework of financial sustainability.

With this vision we look forward to carry on working together with institutions and all stakeholders for the future of the sport we all love.

The failure of the Super League could have serious ramifications for the Nerazzurri. It stands to reason that Suning refrained from selling the club with the ESL in mind, but now that it and the huge money it would have brought are off the table, Suning has some difficult decisions to make. While the team may be only 12 points from a Scudetto, Inter’s off-the-pitch future is as murky as ever with financial issues still swirling around the San Siro.
