The Beautiful Game brings you the latest from England and beyond;
- A virtual meeting, chaired by Premier League CEO Richard Masters, will be attended by the 14 clubs today, without the Big Six to pave a way forward
- UEFA yesterday have blasted the Breakaway Super League in the stringent form and have threatened to ban the clubs who are in this season’s Champions League
- In Italy, the Italian FA held an emergency meeting yesterday just after 13:H00 CET with all the teams, with the three Italian clubs (AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus) in the Super League insisting that they will not be ousted in the Serie A
- Manchester United have stood down from the European Club Association (ECA), which represents all 246 European clubs. It is the sole such body recognised by UEFA, and has member clubs in each UEFA member association
