UEFA is considering allowing single-owner clubs to participate in the Champions League
UEFA is considering allowing two or more clubs with the same owner to compete in European leagues.
This is one of the options under consideration, according to the president of the dominant football nation in Europe. The specific situation is the future of Manchester United .. Qatar has made an offer for the “red devils,” and the prospective new owners are similar to those of Paris Saint-Germain .. Jim Ratcliffe, the owner of Nice, has also made an offer for United.
Ceferin expressed regret for the difficulties endured by Liverpool supporters during last year’s Champions League final in a lengthy interview with Gary Neville. He admitted that Chelsea and Manchester City had reservations about the Super League at first.
When asked if competing in the same tournament with two clubs owned by the same person could cause conflicts, Ceferin responded:.”We are not only thinking about Manchester United . We have five or six club owners who want to buy another club. We have to see what we can do.
“The options are to keep things as they are now or to allow similar clubs to participate in one tournament. I’m not sure yet. There is increasing interest. We should not say “no” to investments in more than one club, but we should see what rules to define”.
The president of UEFA stated that the Super League cannot exist without the English clubs and that he is not concerned about the Premier League’s financial dominance.”I’m not worried about it. I think the Premier League is doing a good job and the other leagues should do better,” he said.
