Manchester United announced the club’s withdrawal from the proposed European Super League last night.
It was an amazing climb after the club proudly announced participation in the new league that was formed on Sunday night.
And yet something was missing from the message. There was no excuse.

In their credit, Arsenal wrote on their Twitter feed: “We made a mistake and we apologize for it.”
United did not apologize and was urged to do so by former Red Devils star Rio Ferdinand.
He asked about the club’s brief announcement, which simply read: “We will not be competing in the European Super League”.
For many, Ed Woodward’s resignation was a start. Shortly before the Super League withdrew, the club announced the upcoming departure of the CEO.
But it really doesn’t go far enough, as Ferdinand makes clear.
United has done great damage to the club’s reputation. And they withdrew because others were leading the way. They didn’t have a choice.
Liverpool owner John Henry posted a video on social media this morning admitting he was wrong and apologizing.
As always, the glaziers are silent. And that’s another reason why they just have to go.
