UEFA will not oppose an ongoing legal battle in a Madrid court surrounding the European Super League.

Liverpool were one of six Premier League clubs who initially agreed to sign up to the proposed breakaway league, before withdrawing less than 48 hours after it was announced.

Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid have refused to back down after the ESL row and are still pursuing the issue through a legal challenge in Madrid.

But European football’s governing body remains committed to fighting any ongoing threat of a breakaway, despite deciding not to oppose the case in court.
