UEFA’s Executive Committee will reportedly discuss expelling Chelsea, Man City, Man United, and Arsenal from the semi-finals of Champions League and Europa League at a meeting on Friday.
According to UEFA executive committee member, Jesper Moller, who spoke to Danish broadcaster DR on Monday, the clubs may be banned from featuring.
“The clubs must go, and I expect that to happen on Friday. Then we have to find out how to finish (this season’s) Champions League tournament,” said Moller, who is the head of the Danish FA.
UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin shared similar sentiments, suggesting they will do everything within their powers to stop the move.
“We’re still assessing with our legal team but we will take all the sanctions that we can and we will inform you as soon we can,” he said.
“My opinion is that as soon as possible they have to be banned from all our competitions and the players from all our competitions,” Ceferin told reporters,”
“There is an extraordinary executive committee meeting on Friday,” he added.
Arsenal and Manchester United could also be kicked out of the Europa League semi-finals.
The five sides are among the 12 founding members of the new Super League, which is set to start in August.
Other teams include Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, AC, and Inter Milan as well as Juventus.
