Dive In

If some elect to go their own way then they must live with the consequences of their choice, they are responsible for their choice. Concretely this means, either you are in, or you are out. You cannot be half in and half out. This has to be absolutely clear.

That’s the president of world football’s governing body, FIFA, issuing a clear warning to the 12 top-tier clubs who announced plans to form a breakaway European Super League. Within hours, six Premier League teams—Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur—pulled out of the ESL. Also a big reason: Raging fans who staged mass protests like these. Arsenal issued an open letter to their fans, saying they’d “made a mistake.” Who’s saying ‘I told you so’: Paris St-Germain which made clear it had zero intention of joining any such league.
