Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said in 2021 that Manchester City were wrong to sign up to the European Super League.
Al Mubarak said that jeopardy is crucial to sporting competition.
It is understood that City’s stance has not changed.
“We will continue to push the envelope in everything we do. We want to be the best club in the world and to do so, we have to disrupt and we will disrupt,” Al Mubarak said in April 2021.
“In being disruptive, sometimes you make mistakes. We have made mistakes in the past, we will make mistakes in the future, but we will do more right than wrong.
“We will be better, stronger and more successful. What I tell the fans on this is, to get to where we are today we have done a lot of things right and we have made a lot of mistakes. It’s part of growing and improving.
“You need to have the courage to make mistakes and to own up to these mistakes to go forward. Regret, yes, a big learning experience. We go on and we will continue.
“It was a decision based on a view, which was a mistaken view, this will improve and strengthen our position as a club. What it missed was an important aspect which is how the fans felt about it.
“We will learn from it, I have no doubt. Our fans appreciate the heart and spirit of everything we do. Our fans, I hope, will understand when we make such a mistake like this our heart was in the right place. Our assessment was wrong.
“We took a decision, I took a decision on this and I take full responsibility, it was a mistake.”
