expelled from the Champions League

These clubs are likely to be kicked out of the Champions League immediately due to their involvement in the creation of a breakaway Super League. “I expect that,” said UEFA board member Jesper Møller, also president of the Danish Football Association.

The three clubs have qualified for the semi-finals of the Champions League. Real Madrid will play their first game at home against Chelsea on April 27 and Paris Saint-Germain will receive Manchester City a day later. The returns are the following week.

Earlier in the day, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin had already said after a meeting in Montreux that he wants to impose sanctions as soon as possible on the twelve clubs that presented themselves as ‘founders’ of the Super League during the night from Sunday to Monday.

Møller said to Danish broadcaster DR that UEFA will make the decision on Friday. “Then we have an extraordinary board meeting. These three clubs will have to leave. Then we look at how we are going to finish the season in the Champions League. ”

Manchester United and Arsenal could also be hit by a European exclusion in the short term. Both English clubs have qualified for the semi-finals of the Europa League. ManUnited will start at home against AS Roma next Thursday and Arsenal will play against Villarreal in Spain. The returns are a week later.

Other top European clubs

The other European top clubs that have committed themselves to the Super League are no longer participating in European club tournaments this season. These are AC Milan, Atlético Madrid, FC Barcelona, ​​Internazionale, Juventus, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

In the joint press release that the twelve European top clubs released just after midnight, the hope is still expressed that there can be constructive cooperation with UEFA and FIFA. However, the chance of this seems very small given the angry reactions from the international football authorities on Monday.

The twelve ‘founders’ also want to remain active in the national competitions. However, if it is up to UEFA, the twelve clubs will be banned from their own leagues and the players who will play in the Super League will no longer be entitled to compete for national teams, for example at a European or World Cup.
