FIFA Chief Gianni Infantino declared his support for UEFA and the Champions League and has made it clear that the Super League clubs and their players would be fully out of their system.
“We can only and strongly disapprove of a SL which is a closed shop, breakaway from current institutions,” FIFA chief Gianni Infantino said in a statement at the UEFA congress.
“No doubt whatsoever of FIFA’s disapproval. Full support to UEFA.
“It is my task and our task to protect the European sports model, club competitions, national teams.
“If they choose to go their own way, they must live with their choice. They are either in or out. They cannot be half in and half out.”
Meanwhile, UEFA president Aleksandr Ceferin has already warned the 12 clubs that they would be banned from every other competition if they go ahead with the Super League plans.
A UEFA executive even suggested that Chelsea, Manchester City, and Real Madrid should be banned from this season’s Champions League with immediate effect.
