Two Year Champions League Ban For Remaining Super League Clubs: UEFA is said to be pondering a severe punishment for the four sides still looking to push ahead with the Super League
Given the massive backlash the twelve sides who joined the Super League received and the subsequent backing out of eight clubs, it looked set that the competition was headed for a sudden death.
However, the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and AC Milan have decided to brazen it out. Despite seeing their counterparts make an early exit in a bid to cut their losses, the aforementioned four clubs have decided to remain true to their initial intentions.
UEFA Set To Ban Clubs
It looks like UEFA has finally had enough of these shenanigans though. Looking to kill off the Super League entirely and with it any lingering notions of the event as well, the governing council is said to be eyeing an unprecedented penalty for the remaining four clubs.
As reported by ESPN, UEFA is on the cusp of handing out a two year Champions League ban to Juventus, AC Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid if they don’t pull out of the Super League at the earliest plausible.
Given the looming ban on these sides, it remains to be seen which course the four teams will decide to take. Florentino Perez meanwhile, the brain behind the European Super League has dismissed any talk of UEFA banning the clubs in the Super League.
Perez has also gone onto threaten the 8 clubs who have withdrawn with legal action. Perez has claimed all clubs were legally bound to the Super League and that we would be pursuing legal recourse against the clubs to have left midway.
The fallout from the Super League has shaken the world of football off late. The ramifications of the league’s inception were truly felt last week when Liverpool and Manchester United’s showdown was called off.
The contest failed to go ahead after Manchester United supporters thronged their stadium in huge numbers, leaving for the contest to be postponed.
