For the time being, UEFA may not impose sanctions on players or clubs that have participated in the recently formed and “scheduled” Premier League. A court in Madrid said this. First, an intense investigation must be undertaken as to whether conflict solutions are feasible. It was not clear whether the Spanish court had jurisdiction over the Swiss-based European Football Association.
The issue was raised on the initiative of Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid, one of the initiators of the Premier League.
In the night from Sunday to Monday 12 major European clubs decided to part with all existing construction and create a new league. The reactions from the soccer world were furious. UEFA is now threatening to expel clubs immediately from the current edition of the UEFA Champions League, if they are still present, and ban the players concerned from playing for their country.
Three of the 12 participating clubs qualified for the Champions League semi-finals. Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid. Usually many of the “twelve” players are active in the European Country Championships this summer, including many internationals at Orange.
