Report: Milan did well to drop out as remaining ESL clubs could face European ban

By Isak Möller -

Milan, along with eight of the founding clubs, have officially left the European Super League and made up with UEFA. The Rossoneri decided that going through a legal battle wasn’t worth it, thus making this decision. 

And it seems it was the right one, seeing as the three clubs that haven’t left could face a European ban. Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid are the clubs still keen on the competition, as was confirmed by a joint statement from them earlier today.

According to the Spanish outlet Cadena Ser (via Maurizio Pistocchi), UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has decided that a two-year European ban should be handed to the three aforementioned clubs.

In fact, it will be announced after the Champions League final and based on this, it was only right of Milan to drop out, even if they did so a bit late. If the decision is indeed announced, then there will be a legal battle between the parties.
