If you are a football fan, you are well aware of the formation of a new European competition titled the Super League. Liverpool are just one of 11 listed as 'Founding Clubs' who will have automatic qualification for the competition. 

Alongside Liverpool, the clubs in the competition are as follows: 

AC Milan, Arsenal FC, Atlético de Madrid, Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona, FC Internazionale Milano, Juventus FC, Liverpool FC, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid CF and Tottenham Hotspur.

Real Madrid squad to face Liverpool in the Champions League

Of the 12 'Founding Clubs' of the Super League, three remain in the Champions League. Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester City are all in the Champions League semi-finals which are set to begin next Tuesday. 

However, unfortunately for those three clubs, a UEFA executive committee member has said he believes they will all be disqualified and kicked out of this season's Champions League. 

When speaking to DR Sport, a Danish outlet, Jesper Moller who is also the head of the Danish FA said that he expects those three clubs to be removed. 

"[Real Madrid, Chelsea FC and Manchester City] must go, and I expect that to happen on Friday."

This is enormous news as it would leave only one club remaining in the Champions League-- Paris Saint-Germain. With three clubs being removed, Paris Saint-Germain could potentially be named as UEFA Champions League winners by default.

However, in a statement released by the 12 'Founding Clubs', which includes Liverpool FC, it says that they look forward to working with FIFA and UEFA. 

"Going forward, the Founding Clubs look forward to holding discussions with UEFA and FIFA to work together in partnership to deliver the best outcomes for the new League and for football as a whole."

Will the three clubs reach a compromise with UEFA or will they be kicked out of the competition?
