He feigned, threatened and finally came to nothing. The European Football Union (UEFA) decided this Friday not to sanction Real Madrid, which will be able to play next Tuesday against Chelsea of England in one of the semifinals of the Champions League, despite the fact that its president, Florentino Pérez, threatened to leave the competition before the imminent creation of the European Super League.
The UEFA Executive Committee, chaired by the Slovenian Aleksander Ceferin, will finally have no objection to Madrid continuing to participate in their competition despite making an allegation last week for leaving it. In fact, Ceferin himself took into account the possibility of leaving Real aside, but due to television rights, which were closed at the beginning of the season, and due to legal issues, UEFA has decided to keep everything unchanged, reported Mundo Deportivo.
After Pérez caused an earthquake as intense as it was brief with the creation of the European Super League in which he himself was in charge, it was thought that UEFA, the main loser, could expel the Madrid team from this edition of the Champions League.
However, this Friday UEFA decided not to sanction Real Madrid and he will be able to play the semifinals of the tournament against Chelsea and the final, if he reaches it, with total normality.
The other semifinal will be starred by the French Paris Saint Germain, with the Argentines Angel Di María, Leandro Paredes and Mauro Icardi, led by Mauricio Pochettino, against the English Manchester City.
