Inter president Steven Zhang has resigned from the European Club Association’s (ECA) board, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Gazzetta dello Sport (via FcInterNews.it) confirmed Zhang’s decision was taken following the announcement that Inter were due to join a new European Super League.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has also resigned from his role as ECA president, taking up a new vice-chairman role within the Super League set-up.

Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nassar Al-Khelaifi is due to replace Agnelli in the role, with the Ligue 1 giants one of the biggest absentees from the Super League plans.

Inter are one of 12 leading European clubs who have confirmed they will be founders of the new league, along with six Premier League clubs – Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool – and three La Liga teams, namely Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

20 teams are expected to participate in the Super League, as per an official statement last night, with 15 founding clubs and five clubs who qualify for the tournament each year via league position.

The Super League is expected to hold matches in midweek while the teams continue to take part in their respective league competitions at weekends.
