UEFA vice president Michele Uva has claimed it will be up to each respective country to decide what happens with the domestic league season if the season is cancelled.
Speaking after UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin claimed the league season could be “lost” [La Repubblica] if not restarted on time, Uva appeared to shift responsibility for awards onto local FAs.
With each respective country on different league schedules and in different circumstances, this is perhaps UEFA’s solution to ensuring discretion in each country.
“It is not a matter of our competence, it will be each league to decide,” said Uva [Scottish Sun].
“The only question concerns those players who are due to expire on their contracts or loans as of June 30th, but it does not concern UEFA which will only ask for a list of teams that will participate in the next European cups by a certain date.”
These comments will be of interest to Rangers fans and Scottish football fans across the country with the situation in Scotland on a knife-edge.
Hearts have also threatened legal action if they are relegated without having completed the league season.
The preference of all clubs, national bodies and UEFA is to complete the league season but Motherwell chief Alan Burrows sees this becoming more “unrealistic” by the day [BBC Scotland].
At present all domestic football must restart within the next three months (before June 30th at the latest) to stand a chance of the season being completed during this campaign.
