Five senior figures from clubs involving the European Super League have stepped down from their roles within the Premier League.

Five executives step down from their Premier League roles following ESL fallout

Colleagues from the 14 clubs have campaigned for them to be removed from their positions of power on the organisation's committees and working groups.


Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has departed from the league's Audit and Remuneration Committee.


Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Liverpool chairman Tom Werner have stood down from the Club Broadcast Advisory Group.


Arsenal and Manchester City's chief executive officers, Vinai Venkatesham and Ferran Soriano, have both left the Club Strategic Advisory Group (CSAG).


Premier League chief executive Richard Masters wrote to the officials, asking them to consider their positions within the organisation.


Executives from the six breakaway Super League clubs used last weekend's Premier League games as an opportunity to apologise in person to officials from the other 14 clubs, however their approach is said to have not been well received.


"The trust has gone completely," one chief executive said. "We will never forget what they tried to do. They are all running around now telling everyone they had nothing to do with it."


The 14 clubs are also continuing to apply pressure on the Premier League to punish the six sides who attempted to breakaway.
