UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has yet to slam the door in the face of the twelve dissidents in public this week, but he is studying the possibility behind the scenes. According to our information, the European confederation will approach its lawyers to study measures to be taken concerning the clubs still in the race in the Champions League and the Europa League. No action or decision has yet been taken regarding the clubs still competing in the various European Cups.
Superleague vs Champions League, war is declared
In addition to PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid have qualified for the semi-finals of the queen competition. The last three clubs mentioned having decided to participate in the Super League, they are in fact in bad shape. Just like Arsenal and Manchester United in the Europa League. The various law firms involved in this case will also work on measures concerning the clubs for next season. Finally, the law firms will also work on all the measures that can be taken for Euro 2021, but also the 2022 World Cup.
European football has been tearing apart since Sunday evening, when the threat of a dissident league bringing together the top names in European football is on the table. Twelve clubs have formalized their intention to go to the end of their project on Sunday evening, while UEFA intended to pull the rug out from under their feet on Monday, by announcing a reform of its most lucrative competition, which would be threatened by the existence of an even more powerful competition, likely to overshadow it. Many political or football personalities were indignant and castigated a “cynical” project, motivated solely by “greed”.
The European Club Association (ECA), deserted by dissidents, including its former president, Andrea Agnelli, but which still includes some major European football clubs, said it was strongly opposed to a closed Superleague model. A position shared and hammered home by UEFA, which says it has the support of FIFA in this explosive issue.
