UEFA consider rule change in three years

Published Add your comment

UEFA are prepared to review the controversial rule that saw Tottenham miss out on the Champions League in favour of Chelsea, the European governing body's president Michel Platini has said.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp branded the rule "unfair" after Tottenham finished fourth in the Premier League but saw their place in the Champions League taken by Chelsea as reigning European champions.

Platini said no rule change to the competition could be brought in for at least three years but that UEFA would be prepared to review the regulation. Speaking in Budapest before the FIFA Congress, Platini told the Press Association: "We can always change the rules. We can always discuss the rules, but not during the competition."
