Fans rejoiced online as they have their beautiful game back. They also gave a special mention to United legend Neville and Liverpool hero Carragher for their brilliant role in leading the charge against the controversial project.

Supporters even reckon the pundits deserve a knighthood for the part they played in stopping the ESL from coming to fruition.

Despite the English clubs pulling out of the competition, Neville hopes each team gets a massive fine for attempting to breakaway.

Speaking after Chelsea's goalless draw with Brighton, he said: "The fact that City have enacted their withdrawal and it looks like Chelsea is on the way, it's done, it's finished.

"They'll have their PR teams and comms teams scrambling around, trying to make this look as lovely as possible in the next 24 hours - working out the right time to withdraw."

He added: "Perez might have them on a £100 million fine to withdraw. Perez might have them on a massive fine.

"I hope so. I hope Perez has got them on a massive fine to withdraw, the lot of them."
