Chelsea and Manchester City and Real Madrid likely to be knocked out of this season’s Champions League according to UEFA delegate predictions.
Shunning the UEFA’s flagship competition in favor of the new European Super League may come with huge consequences for both Chelsea, Manchester City, and Real Madrid who are in the last four of the Uefa Champions League competition.
And now things are turning awkward with the latest developments involving a UEFA committee member that has predicted that Chelsea and Manchester City will both be kicked out of this season’s Champions League because of their involvement in the European Super League (ESL) plans.
Both teams, Chelsea and Manchester City are through to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League alongside Real Madrid, whose president Florentino Perez is chairing up the new breakaway league.
All three teams are yet to feature in the semi-finals of the UEFA competition, with French side Paris Saint-Germain making up the fourth team in the last four stage – though PSG have rejected the chance to join the ESL.
The UEFA’s Danish delegate Jesper Moller believes only French side PSG will keep their place in the competition, with the other three sides set to be given the boot.
- Clubs could earn more than they earn in the Champions League in the new Super League competition.
- UEFA to ban clubs and players from competing in competitions should they join Super League.
- Jose Mourinho breaks silence after Tottenham sack with a sarcastic response.
- Champions League. The best team that failed to win plus a ranking of worst to best winners.
Through Twitter, Jesper Moller said:
“The clubs must go, and I expect that to happen on Friday.”
“Then we have to find out how to finish (this season’s) Champions League tournament.”
Chelsea and Real Madrid are set to battle it out in the semi-final, while PSG are set to meet Manchester City in the other tie, with the first legs of the competition slated for the end of this month.
However, as thing stands by, the semi-final clash doesn’t look likely to go ahead now unless we witness a sharp U-turn from any of the ESL rebels.
The UEFA president Aleksandr Ceferin on Monday said: “We will take all the sanctions that we can and we will inform you as soon we can.
“My opinion is that as soon as possible they have to be banned from all our competitions and the players from all our competitions.”
: “I cannot stress more strongly at the moment that UEFA and the football world stand together alongside this disgraceful, self-serving project from a select few clubs in Europe fuelled by greed above all else.
“This idea is a spit in the face of all football lovers and our society as well. We must not let them take it [football] away from us.
“Not only the football world, but society and governments are united. It’s part of our culture. We are all united against this nonsense of a project.”
