‘Over the last few days, we have seen the great passion around football, and the loyalty our fans have for this club,’ the letter read.
‘You made it clear that you were against the European Super League, and we listened. We made a mistake, and we want to put things right.
‘Although the wounds are still there and I understand it will take time to heal, I am now committed to rebuilding the trust of our fans and learning from this.
‘We saw that European football needs to become more sustainable for the long-term. However, we accept that the Super League was not the way forward.’
