UEFA and the European Club Association have firmly rejected a European Super League, saying no recent talks have taken place between clubs on the subject.
The two organisations held a joint press conference in Brussels restating their commitment to working together to shape European football in years to come.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin and ECA chief Andrea Agnelli – who is also chairman of Juventus – jointly addressed a number of issues relating to football governance.
Both men also denied any recent discussion have taken place between major clubs regarding a potential European Super League after breakaway plans were released by Football Leaks and published by German magazine Der Speigel.
“What is ruled out, and must be ruled out, is a Super League,” Agnelli said.
UEFA president Ceferin added: “A Super League is out of the question.
“We discussed with all the big clubs and [they indicated] there were no serious discussions about it, 99 per cent didn't even know anything was going on.”
