English Premier League outfit Man United have denied their involvement in the European premier League competition that has been reported in the media.

It was reported that the Red Devils and the Premier League title holders Liverpool are part of the teams that are working out modalities to begin a European Premier League competition in 2022 and it was claimed that it could put an end to their participation in the UEFA Champions League.

The report added that the proposed European Premier League competition is backed by the world football governing body, FIFA and it is supposed to include 18 teams from the biggest leagues in ye world.

This has, however, been denied by Man United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward who claims that he has no knowledge of the competition.

He, therefore, revealed that he has only been engaging with the European Club Association and UEFA, noting that the only thing that has been discussed is the potential change of the Champions League from 2024 onwards.

Ed Woodward hinted that the changes could include the expansion of the Champions League to 36 teams as that is the only conversation Man United have been involved in and not the European Champions League as reported in the press.
