Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has broken his silence about the European Super League. He vowed to keep competing with the best teams in the world in an apology to the fans. Manchester City was one of the 12 teams to join the now doomed European Super League. City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham all quickly pulled out from the tournament. A new set of measures have been put up by the Premier League. They include a charter where each team owner is required to sign for.
“We will continue to push the envelope in everything we do. We want to be the best club in the world and to do so, we have to disrupt and we will disrupt.” Al Mubarak said. “In being disruptive, sometimes you make mistakes. We have made mistakes in the past, we will make mistakes in the future, but we will do more right than wrong.”
“We will be better, stronger, and more successful. What I tell the fans on this is, to get to where we are today we have done a lot of things right and we have made a lot of mistakes. It’s part of growing and improving.” he added. “You need to have the courage to make mistakes and to own up to these mistakes to go forward. If you go back 12 years ago where we started, to where we are today, we couldn’t have done the leaps we have made over the years without taking risks and without making mistakes, learning and coming back and constantly improving.”
Al Mubarak conceded that it was a mistake to join the European Super League. He revealed that the move strained a number of relationships especially the Premier League and fellow clubs. He explained that it was a learning experience for the club.
