Afiasco of the Super League, which saw the project shatter into a thousand pieces this week in the face of the sling of supporters and leaders, the twelve dissident clubs and carriers of this new competition will not, for the moment, be sanctioned by UEFA. According to information from Parisian, the European football body wishes to procrastinate before examining the potential legal proceedings against the English clubs of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham, Spaniards of Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Atlético Madrid and Italians Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
While the UEFA executive committee met on the morning of Friday 23 April, the daily explains that the leaders, including president Aleksander Ceferin, do not want to make hasty decisions before the end of the season , pointing in particular to the compensation that could be requested by the channels holding the TV rights of the current Champions League. There will therefore be no exclusion from the big-eared cup for Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid, who are still engaged in the competition and qualified for the semi-finals.
“The UEFA executive committee has been informed of the latest developments in relation to the Super League, in particular regarding the options available to UEFA and the measures it plans to take,” the European body announced in a press release, without giving further details.
“We’re going to have to sort out what just happened”
Among the sanctions favored by UEFA is in particular that of punishing the leaders, and not the clubs, at the origin of this football coup. However, some voices in European football, like the Danish Jesper Moller, member of the UEFA executive committee, do not rule out the possibility of taking broader measures, and therefore of sanctioning the twelve dissident clubs.
“We’re going to have to sort out what just happened. I can not go into details, we are discussing with our legal department “, explained Aleksander Ceferin for the time being, suggesting possible legal, disciplinary or sporting sanctions. The debates promise to be more agitated than ever over the coming weeks in Nyon, Switzerland, at UEFA headquarters.
