There is no risk of AC Milan and the three remaining Super League members being suspended from UEFA competitions, a report claims.
ESPN report last night that the four remaining clubs – Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and AC Milan – face maximum punishment under the organisation’s disciplinary pathway, which is a two-year ban from the Champions League or Europa League.
Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur plus rivals Inter all appeared to be in the clear as they had officially distanced themselves from the project in follow-up statements.
According to MilanNews however, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Milan are not at risk of exclusion from European competitions for two years. There is no possibility that this case can occur as a Madrid court order explicitly said so. The members of UEFA’s disciplinary committees – who are judges and lawyers – would be subject to severe penalties, including civil and potentially criminal liability if they ignored the ruling of the Madrid court.
