Javier Tebas has opened the door for UEFA to expel Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus from the Champions League in the near future.
Despite the other nine clubs that signed up to the European Super League pulling out, these three teams remain committed to the proposal, which could incur sanctions from UEFA.
“My personal opinion is that the Champions League is prepared to make do without Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus,” LaLiga president Tebas said at the Club Advisory Forum.
“The Champions League kept going without Manchester United for five years. Milan were banned from European competitions and the competition kept going. This would be unprecedented in Europe.
“Of course, I’d like them to be in it, but the facts are there and UEFA must act.”
Would it be difficult to reintegrate these three clubs back into European competitions if they are banned?
“I don’t think so,” Tebas added. “This problem with the Super League is fixed.
“There are three [clubs] left shipwrecked there.
“If [Aleksandar] Ceferin says that [it will be difficult], it’s because he’s looking for an act of reconciliation that they were wrong.
“But the problem has been resolved.”
