UEFA to punish Super League clubs, Real & Barca set for the worst


Ceferin says punishment necessary

It has been nearly a week since the chaos of the Super League emerged and now with the competition in ruin, the clubs are facing the possibility of severe sanctions for the actions of their owners and executives.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has said that the the world cannot pretend as if nothing happened and that the consequence of shame and hate from everyone on the outside is not enough.

“Let’s see. Everyone has to take consequences for what they did and we cannot pretend nothing happened,” Ceferin said. “You cannot do something like that and just say ‘I’ve been punished because everybody hates me’.

“They don’t have problems because of anyone else but themselves. It’s not OK what they did and we will see in next few days what we have to do.”

English clubs to be favoured

Ceferin said that the English clubs are likely to be favoured having left the league first. However, for Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus the sanctions could be significantly worse.

“But for me it’s a clear difference between the English clubs and the other six. They pulled out first, they admitted they made a mistake. You have to have some greatness to say ‘I was wrong,’” said the president.

“For me there are three groups of this 12 – the English six, who went out first, then the other three [Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, Inter] after them and then the ones who feel that Earth is flat and they think the Super League still exists. And there is a big difference between those. But everyone will be held responsible. In what way, we will see.

Ceferin called out to the English clubs in the UEFA congress last week. He said that ‘everyone makes mistakes’ and that there was still time to reverse their actions. This would of course turn out to be the case as later than same day, the Super League came crumbling down.

“I don’t want to say disciplinary process but it has to be clear that everyone has to be held responsible in a different way. Is it disciplinary? Is it the decision of the executive committee? We will see. It’s too early to say,” Ceferin continued.

What the specific punishments will be is unknown. Bans from competitions, varying fines and transfer suspensions are all possible examples of what could happen.

There has been sentiment that fans should not be punished due to the acts of the clubs owners. Therefore a financial hit to the club’s owners and those responsible seems the fairest way to set a precedent.
