UEFA are expected to expel Manchester City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid from the Champions League and Manchester United and Arsenal from the Europa League, according to the executive committee member Jesper Moller.
European soccer was rocked by the biggest story in at least a generation when 12 of Europe's biggest clubs announced plans to break away from the established soccer order and form a Super League.
says the teams in the new Super League could be thrown out of this season’s Champions League and Europa League following the announcement.
"The clubs are going out, and I expect that to happen on Friday, and then you have to see how to finish the Champions League,"
Moller toldDR Sport
: "There must be one extraordinary executive committee meeting on Friday. I have an expectation that the 12 clubs will be thrown out."
Players from the 12 clubs setting up their own Super League could be banned from this year’s European Championship and the upcoming World Cup, but Moller said the players will be able to choose whether to stay or end their contracts.
"I believe that the contracts automatically lapse when the clubs opt out [of UEFA tournaments]. Then the players are free and can choose to play for a club that is part of the solidarity and community - our pyramid system," he said.
