Real Madrid, Man City, Chelsea could be booted from this season's Champions League


Breakaway Super League clubs Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid are likely be banned from this season's Champions League semi-finals, UEFA executive committee member Jesper Moller has said.

"The clubs must go, and I expect that to happen on Friday," Moller, who is the head of the Danish FA, told Danish broadcaster DR on Monday.

"Then we have to find out how to finish (this season's) Champions League tournament.

"There is an extraordinary executive committee meeting on Friday."

The three clubs are part of the 12 clubs who announced on Sunday they were setting up the European Super League as a rival to UEFA's Champions League.

Real Madrid are due to face Chelsea and Manchester City are drawn against Paris Saint Germain, who have not signed up to the breakaway league.

Moller's comments came shortly after UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said he wanted bans on the rebel clubs to be imposed.

"We're still assessing with our legal team but we will take all the sanctions that we can and we will inform you as soon we can," he said.

"My opinion is that as soon as possible they have to be banned from all our competitions and the players from all our competitions."
