Tottenham Hotspur may not face the brunt of UEFA anger as sanctions against ESL clubs are mooted

According to ESPN, Tottenham Hotspur will be among six English teams that will have to face the music as UEFA look to sanction the teams involved in forming the breakaway European Super League.

UEFA is now ready to pursue severe disciplinary action against clubs that signed up to the Super League and have yet to distance themselves from the project. The maximum punishment will see the clubs handed a two-year ban from the premier European competitions.

However, president Aleksander Caferin has come out and accepted that the organization is dealing with the issue on a club-to-club basis. Given that Tottenham is amongst the teams who have already distanced themselves from the project, we might not face the brunt of the punishment.

UEFA to punish the clubs involved in the formation of the European Super League

UEFA have spent the past 10 days in conversation with the 12 clubs in an effort to agree a lesser sanction. They have thus far reached an agreement with potentially seven clubs, including Tottenham.

The same cannot be said of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan, who are all still officially yet to leave the competition. These four clubs look set to face the brunt of the punishment once it gets to that.

Ceferin has already admitted that there is a clear difference between the clubs still in the competition and those who have opted out of it. While it may prove impossible that we go scot-free, there is hope that we could get away with a slap on the wrist.

“There is a big difference between those. But everyone will be held responsible. In what way, we will see.”

Escaping UEFA sanctions is but one thing Spurs have to worry about. All clubs that have pulled out of the venture could face stern financial penalties if the ones still in it seek legal proceedings based on the agreement signed.

UEFA need nine of the clubs involved to withdraw in order for the competition to be dissolved. With all six English clubs and Atletico Madrid on board, they need just two more teams to bite the bullet. While there has been some progress regarding Inter Milan, they are yet to reach an agreement with UEFA.
