Ed Woodward has stepped down from his role with UEFA while Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham are among the clubs who have resigned from the European Club Association (ECA).

United’s executive vice-chairman was appointed onto UEFA’s Professional Football Strategy Council in 2017, while his decision comes after United confirmed their move to be part of the new European Super League on Sunday evening.

Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli also resigned as chairman of the European Club Association and the UEFA Executive Committee on Sunday, while the Italian club also left the ECA.

Several clubs who are forming the breakaway European Super League have now followed suit including United, Arsenal, Spurs, AC Milan and Inter.
