The international press is tracking the tremendous earthquake in world football due to the appearance of the European Super League, which will have the participation of important clubs from Spain, Italy and England. Just three of them recently qualified for the 2020/21 Champions League semi-finals, so UEFA is analyzing a possible sanction. Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City are the ones involved.
Information collected by the Spanish newspaper Sport indicates that Jesper Moller, a member of the UEFA executive committee, told the DR chain this Monday that Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea could be excluded from the semifinals of the Champions League. All this for being the promoters of the Super League.
“The clubs have to go and I hope that happens on Friday. Then we have to see how to finish the Champions League tournament,” Moller said. The only one waiting on the other shore and without “losing heart” is PSG. But what about the competition? …
Now, UEFA will have to define which teams must appear for the semifinal phase, in case of suspending the three in question. It should be remembered that Real Madrid eliminated Liverpool, another of those that is part of the European Super League group. Chelsea advanced after leaving Porto on the road and Manchester City did the same with Borussia Dortmund.
