UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said he wanted to “rebuild the unity” of the European football body after six English clubs backtracked on plans to join the rebel Super League.

The withdrawal by Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, just two days after the league’s unveiling, left just six Spanish and Italian teams involved.

“I said yesterday that it is admirable to admit a mistake and these clubs made a big mistake,” Ceferin said in a statement.

“But they are back in the fold now and I know they have a lot to offer not just to our competitions but to the whole of the European game.

“The important thing now is that we move on, rebuild the unity that the game enjoyed before this and move forward together.”

The withdrawals followed an angry reaction from fans, officials and politicians who claimed the Super League was greedy and anti-competitive, as teams were guaranteed a spot each year.
