UEFA has opened an investigation to take disciplinary measures against Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus over attempts to launch the European Super League.
Twelve clubs tried to establish the Super League before all, with the exception of Real, Barcelona, and Juventus, responded to pressures and criticisms and announced the retreat.
UEFA said in a statement on Wednesday: “Observers from the Bioeva Values and Discipline Committee have been appointed to start disciplinary investigations into possible violation of the legal framework of UEFA by Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus in connection with the launch of the project called the Super League.”
Nine clubs withdrew from the Super League project, namely Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Milan, Inter Milan, and Atletico Madrid, and reached an agreement with Uefa.
The withdrawing clubs openly acknowledged that they would take all possible steps to end their relationship with the Super League.
UEFA had said last week that it would start disciplinary measures against Real, Barcelona, and Juventus, and the three clubs responded with an attack against the Confederation due to “intolerable” pressure from Uefa to abandon this project.
