- UEFA are at odds with the new Super League format.
- UEFA's president Ceferin threatened to ban clubs involved from UEFA competitions.
- He has also said players from those clubs will be prohibited from representing the national teams.
- However, ESL chairman Flo Perez is sure neither will happen.
The new Super League format is not being taken kindly to by the UEFA, with its president Aleksandr Ceferin threatening to ban clubs involved from UEFA competitions such as Champions League and players from participating in international tournaments. ESL chairman Flo Perez is convinced it won't happen.
"Players banned from international competitions and national teams according to UEFA? Don't worry, this will not happen. They won't be banned if they join the Super League."
"Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea, and the other clubs of the Super League, will not be banned from the Champions League or domestic leagues, 100 per cent. I'm sure. Impossible."
We'd like to have Perez's conviction but we guess it'll boil down to what UEFA can legally do about the situation. One thing is for certain: Champions League and Europa League will suffer because we can't see how the Super League can be crammed in at midweeks as another tournament on top of these two.
