Serie A giants Inter have confirmed their plan to withdraw from the Super League following universal condemnation of the proposal.

12 of Europe's biggest clubs had signed up for a closed league competition which would line the pockets of those in charge, but fans around the world and players for those elite clubs have revolted and most sides have now announced their withdrawals.

All six Premier League clubs - Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham - are out and on Wednesday morning Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli accepted the breakaway plans will not be able to take place.

A statement from Inter reads: "FC Internazionale Milano confirms that the Club is no longer part of the Super League project. We are always committed to giving the fans the best football experience; innovation and inclusion have been part of our DNA since our foundation. Our commitment with all stakeholders to improve the football industry will never change.

"Inter believe that football, like any sector of activity, should have an interest in constantly improving its competitions, in order to continue to excite fans of all ages all over the world, within a framework of financial sustainability.

"With this vision we will continue to work together with institutions and all stakeholders for the future of the sport we all love."

Atletico Madrid also announced on Wednesday morning their intention to withdraw from the Super League. While they have not released a statement as of yet, Inter's city rivals AC Milan have also joined the clubs looking to back out and salvage any crumb of credibility - though we're probably past that stage now.

German clubs Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund and French giants Paris Saint-Germain outright rejected the chance to join the Super League earlier in proceedings.
