Guide UEFA changed its tough stance against national federations that are going to finish his football season prematurely. To the absolute end of the season without finishing very close to Belgium, the Netherlands and Scotland.
If earlier, the UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, founder of militant threatened that Belgium risks not play in European cups next season, but now the rhetoric has changed to more lenient.
So, in a press release from UEFA after yesterday’s video conference with representatives of the 55 member countries have allowed special cases:
“UEFA strongly recommends completion of domestic competition in the top divisions and the national Cup. But there may be some exceptional cases. With this in mind, UEFA is currently developing some guidelines and principles concerning the participation in the European club competition to help its member associations in case of cancellation of League or Cup”.
Therefore, UEFA is already talking about exceptional cases. While there is no explanation, what is the “exclusivity” of some cases compared to others, but we are clearly talking about the possibility of abolishing national Championships.
The conference submitted a proposal to study the plan B, in which the representation in the European Cup 2020/21 will be determined by the current club rating of UEFA. As for Ukraine, then in such hands Shakhtar will be able to participate in the group stage of the Champions League, and Dinamo will pass through the sieve of qualification.
