Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid will be kicked out of the Champions League by Friday, according to the chairman of the Danish FA.
The three big sides are among the 12 clubs to have confirmed their plans to form the European Super League, a move that has been met with huge condemnation across the football world.
UEFA have promised heavy sanctions for the teams involved. On Monday afternoon, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin confirmed that any player who participates in the European Super League will be banned from representing their country at major tournaments.
Further repercussions look set to be on the way with DBU chairman Jesper Moller, who also sits in UEFA’s executive committee, expecting the teams in the Super League to be expelled from this season’s Champions League.
Chelsea, Man City and Real Madrid have all reached the semi-final stages of the competition with Paris Saint-Germain, who are not part of the 12, the only other team involved.
‘[Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea] are going out, and I expect that to happen on Friday,’ Moller told DR. ‘And then you have to see how to finish the Champions League.’
He added: ‘There must be one extraordinary executive committee meeting on Friday. I have an expectation that the 12 clubs will be thrown out.’
Moller’s comments would also mean that Manchester United and Arsenal face being thrown out of the UEFA Europa League.
Both Premier League teams are also in the semi-final stage and will face Roma and Villarreal respectively.
