I've got a feeling that Liverpool will qualify to the next phase though.

"If we find that any individual owns more than 51% in two clubs, our rules are clear. They cannot both compete," said Uefa's William Gaillard.





Presuming that Roman will be found to own a controlling stake in CSKA...

What does this [the above] mean in practical terms? Does it imply that we may see a group of three teams or that Chelsea vs. CSKA (and viceversa) will not be allowed? :confused:
The UEFA Spokesman said that in any cases, if there is found to be a 51%+ interest then the the owner himself (Roman Abramovich in this case, obviously) will have to decide which team stays in and which is thrown out of the competition. Interesting.

The reason this is so complicated is because **officially** all his company's done is sponsored the shirts, but.........they paid £30M for the pleasure......

Abramovich is seemingly fine, he merely owns a stake in CSKA's sponsors and not CSKA itself. I expect the UEFA report to clear him of any wrongdoing.

I'm sure I read that it was all a load of cobblers because he only owns a part stake in the company that sponsors the shirts, not the actual club.

But if it somehow was the case, they'd probably kick one of the teams out and replace them with a loser from the qualifying round.
If Abramovich was found to have some interest in CSKA, then it becomes his choice of which club out of Chelsea and CSKA can compete in the CL. And if he chooses Chelsea, remember that CSKA knocked out Rangers to qualify...

That would be pretty amazing, though probably all but impossible.
I would have preferred if Man u had lost though.
