UEFA Gives Manchester United Deadline to Resolve Europa League Participation Issue

Manchester United

UEFA has given Manchester United until Monday to resolve an issue that could prevent them from playing in the Europa League next season, according to the UK Telegraph.

The complication arises because United’s co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, also owns Nice, which has also qualified for the Europa League.

United earned their spot in the competition by winning the FA Cup final against Manchester City, despite finishing eighth in the Premier League.

Ratcliffe’s ownership of Nice and Swiss club Lausanne violates UEFA’s rules, which prohibit an owner from having “decisive influence” over multiple clubs in the same competition.

Since Nice finished fifth in Ligue 1 and higher in their league than United, UEFA’s rules could force Manchester United to drop into the Europa Conference League unless a solution is found.
