Premier League clubs say NO to Champions League play-offs

Published Add your comment

The Premier League's proposal to introduce a play-off for the fourth Champions League place has stalled after clubs voted against looking into the idea for the time being.

At the Premier League's board meeting, chairmen decided against looking into the proposal any further at this stage after the idea surfaced following last month's meeting.

The 'big four' clubs of Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal were reportedly quick to voice their opposition while other clubs were keen on the idea in principle.
