UEFA president, Aleksander Ceferin, has threatened to ban the Spanish and Italian teams still adamant about the European Super League from the Champions League.
Although plans for the Super League fell apart this week, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan have still not left the project.
In a phone interview with the Associated Press, Ceferin said, “It’s crystal clear that the clubs will have to determine whether they are Super League or European clubs.”
“Of course, if they say we’re a Super League, they don’t play Champions League… and if they’re willing to do that, they can play in their own competition.”
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who was supposed to chair the Super League, continues to defy Ceferin by promising to work on reviving the competition.
Madrid’s place in the Champions League semi-finals next week, on the other hand, is safe.
