Jesper Moller, boss of the Danish football federation and member of the UEFA Executive Committee, calls for the exclusion of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester City.
Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester City, three of the four Champions League semi-finalists this season, “must be excluded“of the competition, due to their participation in the dissident Super League project,” Jesper Moller, Danish football association boss and member of the UEFA Executive Committee, said on Monday.
“Clubs should be excluded, and I expect that to happen on Friday (editor’s note: during an extraordinary meeting of the UEFA Executive Committee). Then we’ll have to see how to finish the Champions League“, estimated Mr. Moller, on the Danish channel DR. The exclusion of these three teams and a possible cancellation of the semi-finals at the end of April-beginning of May would leave Paris SG, which is not among the twelve clubs of the future Super League, the only one in contention It is not yet known whether such a scenario would crown the French club during this edition.
Twelve of the most powerful clubs in Europe announced on Monday the launch of a European Super League, on the sidelines of the Champions League. Six Premier League teams: Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham, three from Liga, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid and three from Serie A, Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
“I don’t think such a competition will be so popular with fans and those who love football.“, added Jesper Moller.
