Liverpool and Manchester United have formally declared their opposition to UEFA president Michel Platini´s plans for domestic cup winners to qualify for the Champions League.

The English clubs were the most outspoken opponents to the proposals among the 102 members of the European Club Forum who met in Nyon, Switzerland on Tuesday.

UEFA communications director William Gaillard told PA Sport: "The most opposed to those proposals were Liverpool and Manchester United - they do not want to see a change to the format at all."
