Five of big six chiefs leave Premier League posts after ESL fallout

The fallout from the European Super League is continuing, with five club chiefs resigning from their roles within the Premier League in the aftermath.

The league, which was formed and ended within the space of 48 hours earlier this month, saw the Premier League's 'Big Six' sign up to a new European competition.

However, instant fan backlash saw the clubs hastily backtrack on their decision and withdraw from the league.

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward announced his resignation from the club shortly after, and now he has joined four other Premier League club officials by standing down from his role with the Premier League.

The two have resigned from the Club Strategic Advisory Group.
