UEFA : Semi-Finals Between Real Madrid And Chelsea May Not Hold As Punishment For Joining The European Super League

By  | 

UEFA president, Aleksander Ceferin has said there is a ‘small possibility’ that next week’s Champions League semi-final between Real Madrid and Chelsea may not go ahead as punishment for their roles in the European Super League saga.

The two clubs were part of the 12 European giants who announced their intention to form a controversial breakaway competition, which they referred to in the announcement as the Super League.

However, after huge protests from fans, players, managers, and pundits, plans for the breakaway league were suspended.

Discussions are currently ongoing as to what punishment the 12 clubs, which included all of the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’, three clubs from Spain and three from Italy, would face for their role in the scheme.

Three of the 12 clubs, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Real Madrid – are still in the Champions League while Arsenal and Manchester United are competing in the Europa League semi-finals.

The clubs might be disqualified from the competition, especially as Real Madrid have not formally withdrawn from the Super League.

UEFA president, Aleksander Ceferin, who called the breakaway group ‘snakes’, ‘arrogant’ and ‘greedy’ in recent days, has admitted there is a small possibility’ the semi-finals will be played.
