Joel Glazer assured supporters that necessary steps will be taken to rebuild relationships with stakeholders across the game

Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer has apologized to supporters for the club's involvement in the breakaway European Super League project, saying the hierarchy failed to show respect to the "deep-rooted traditions" of the English game.

United were among the six Premier League clubs who had signed up for the venture before withdrawing Tuesday amid a storm of protests from fans, players and the British government.

Breakaway Super League founder and Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli said earlier Wednesday that the project could no longer go ahead after several founding clubs withdrew.

Glazer assured supporters that necessary steps will be taken to rebuild relationships with stakeholders across the game as they look for solutions to the "long-term challenges facing the football pyramid".

However, the club's Supporters Trust (MUST) described the decision to break away as a watershed moment and said fans could not "carry on as if nothing happened".
