By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Barcelon, Real Madrid, and Juventus will be banned from the Champions League this week, according to reports in Itaky.
The three European giants are facing disciplinary proceedings over their plans to form the European Super League.
They have insisted that they are within their rights to form a new competition and claim that UEFA and FIFA have no right to get in their way.
Of the dozen clubs to form the new breakaway league outside UEFA’s control, only Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus are still on board.
FIFA have already begun disciplinary proceedings against the three clubs. The other nine, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City, signed a letter of apology to UEFA and pledged to give £12.9m to grassroots football.
La Liga president and UEFA Executive Committee member Javier Tebas said on Tuesday that Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus should be ‘scared’ of the outcome of UEFA’s disciplinary proceedings against them.
