European football governing body, UEFA, has made it clear that its qualification rules stand. Despite misquoted President Ceferin’s comments, it is not planning to make changes to its rules regarding club competition qualification requirements for next season.

In an interview earlier this week, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin told beIN SPORTS that he thought the decision to call off the season in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 was premature.

“My opinion is that you cancel a season super early, it is not ideal because things can get better a lot quicker, and everybody can play except a few leagues.”

“For us, the important thing is that we know the champion, who is second, who is third and fourth.” He said.

“But if it’s the decision of the government, what can the clubs do? Or even the leagues? They cannot do anything. But for me, the decision was premature. But it does not affect UEFA, so it’s is their decision,” Ceferin added.

After Ceferin’s interview, it was reported that clubs from leagues who decided to cancel the 2019/2020 league season due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, would have to take part in preliminary qualifying rounds for UEFA competitions next season.

A UEFA statement on Twitter read: “With regard to the way some quotes in an interview with beIN have been reported, UEFA wishes to make clear that its President Ceferin said that clubs from leagues which were abandoned this season would still need to be ready to play qualification rounds for next season according to the current access list.”

“He did not mention or hint at any change to the UEFA club competitions qualification rules,” UEFA said.

With the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic, the regular flow of the European football calendar has been disrupted.
