The UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has warned Chelsea and other 11 clubs that tried to form the European Super League that there will be consequences for their actions.

“Let’s see. Everyone has to take consequences for what they did and we cannot pretend nothing happened,” UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin told the Mail on Sunday when asked whether the 12 clubs would be punished for trying to form a Super League.

“You cannot do something like that and just say: ‘I’ve been punished because everybody hates me.’ They don’t have problems because of anyone else but themselves. It’s not OK what they did and we will see in next few days what we have to do.

“But for me it’s a clear difference between the English clubs and the other six. They pulled out first, they admitted they made a mistake. You have to have some greatness to say: ‘I was wrong.’

“For me there are three groups of this 12 — the English Six, who went out first, then the other three [Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, Inter] after them and then the ones who feel that Earth is flat and they think the Super League still exists. And there is a big difference between those. But everyone will be held responsible. In what way, we will see.

“I don’t want to say disciplinary process but it has to be clear that everyone has to be held responsible in a different way. Is it disciplinary? Is it the decision of the executive committee? We will see. It’s too early to say.”
