#PLStories- UEFA release European Super League statement after Liverpool stance confirmed #LFC #SuperLeague

Uefa

UEFA will not oppose an ongoing legal battle in a Madrid court surrounding the European Super League. Liverpool were one of six Premier League clubs who initially agreed to sign up to the proposed breakaway league, before withdrawing less than 48 hours after it was announced. Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid have refused to back down after the ESL row and are still pursuing the issue through a legal challenge in Madrid.  UEFA have released a brief statement outline their decision to abandon their case against the three clubs still tied to the idea of a European Super League.

UEFA statement read: “Proceedings against FC Barcelona, Juventus FC and Real Madrid CF declared null and void. Following the stay of proceedings against FC Barcelona, Juventus FC and Real Madrid CF, in the matter related to a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework in connection with the so called ‘Super League’, the UEFA Appeals Body has declared today the proceedings null and void, as if the proceedings had never been opened.”

A report in The Guardian, which includes a new UEFA warning of the ESL posing an “ongoing existential threat” to the future of football, states that Liverpool’s position remains unchanged.

A Liverpool spokesperson told The Guardian in a statement: “Our involvement in the proposed ESL plans has been discontinued. We are absolutely committed to following that through and there should be no ambiguity to suggest otherwise. We are acting on the best legal advice and approach to appropriately end our involvement.”
