A Spanish judge has ordered all sanctions brought against the 12 participating European Super League clubs, including Chelsea Football Club, to be cancelled with immediate effect.
“These actions… constitute a flagrant violation of the order… of 20th April 2021,” Judge Ruiz said in his latest ruling on Thursday.
“These acts are not isolated acts (…) but are a succession of acts and statements forming part of a strategy being devised by the defendants with the aim of provoking the ineffectiveness of a court decision.
“The unjustified opening of disciplinary proceedings against Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona constitutes a clear breach of the interim measures granted by the Order of 20 April 2021.”
Judge Ruiz de Lara instructed that Chelsea and the other eight clubs should be freed from the forced ‘agreement’ they made with UEFA for their European Super League involvement.
The judge then directed his fury at the English Premier League, insisting that UEFA has to tell the English top flight that all actions against the Big Six – Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea – must be ‘annulled’.
