After the failed attempt to promote their independent league, the twelve European clubs who launched the European Super League ended up suffering the consequences.
Whilst the six Premier League clubs rapidly washed their hands from the whole plan and accepted their sentences, Juventus continue to play hardball, alongside Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Whilst UEFA were threatening the trio with some major punishments that could have seen them banned from participating in next season’s Champions League, it seems that the organization is now taking a step backwards.
According to Football Italia, UEFA has announced the temporarily suspension of the legal proceedings against the three clubs who are yet to abandon their Super League plans.
The report adds that According to the New York Times, UEFA must first challenge a ruling from a Spanish court or be open to potential prosecution and have to pay the clubs damages if they go ahead with the disciplinary action.
Therefore, it appears that the organization is now reluctant to take a step in the wrong direction, as it could suffer from severe repercussions.
Although this latest event is undoubtedly a point in favor of the Old Lady and her Spanish allies, this legal war is obviously far from over.
