FIFA president Gianni Infantino spoke at a UEFA congress meeting on Tuesday and warned the Super League breakaway clubs of potential consequences.

“We can only strongly disapprove the creation of the Super League, a Super League which is a closed shop, which is a breakaway from the current institutions, from the leagues, from the associations, from UEFA and from FIFA,” said the FIFA chief.

“There is a lot to throw away for the short-term financial gain of some. They need to reflect, and they need to assume responsibility.”

“If some elect to go their own way then they must live with the consequences of their choice. They are responsible for their choice. Concretely, this means either you’re in or you’re out. You cannot be half in or half out.”

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has also lashed out at the 12 clubs, including Madrid and Barcelona, but also said there is a chance for them to come back in.
