Aleksander Ceferin, UEFA president just stated there is a ‘small chance’ that the Champions League semi-final between Real Madrid and Chelsea may not hold which might serve as punishment for the roles they in the European Super League saga.
Both clubs were part of the 12 European teams who announced their intention to form competition, which was announced as the Super League.
Due to huge protests from their fans, players, managers, and pundits, plans for the breakaway league were all suspended.
Chelsea, Manchester City, and Real Madrid are still in the Champions League while Arsenal and Manchester United remain in the Europa League.
Real Madrid have not formally withdrawn from the Super League so therefore might be disqualified from the competition.
Aleksander Ceferin said ‘The season has already started, so broadcasters and fans would come at us for damages if we don’t play the semi-finals,’ he stated on Slovenian TV channel 24UR.
‘So, there’s a probability that this match isn’t played next week. But, things could change in the future.’
In an interview, El Larguero’s Manu Carreno, Perez, who was also a of the president of the Super League, claimed a smear campaign was created to oppose the plans after fierce backlash across Europe.
He then stated that ‘I am a bit sad and disappointed, ‘We have been on this project for three years.
What we could actually change is the midweek games. The Champions League is outdated, it’s gets interesting from the quarter-finals onwards.
