According to Nyon, this is a due but temporary act after the Madrid court order. And he plans to reopen the proceedings
The disciplinary proceedings against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus have been canceled (for the moment) by UEFA. It is the new chapter in the dramatic battle that splits football and since April has pitted Nyon against the three rebel clubs that founded the Superlega.
The reason for the decision? The latest order of the judge of the Madrid Commercial Court, Manuel Ruiz de Lara, which ordered the cancellation of the procedure. And he threatened, in case of non-compliance, the indictment of President Ceferin for disobedience. Months ago, again following the order of Ruiz de Lara, UEFA had already suspended the proceedings against the rebels. Now the cancellation. The judge had also ordered to cancel the sanctions inflicted on the other 9 rebels (including Milan and Inter) who had repented and had accepted a punishment in exchange for reintegration into the system: UEFA therefore suspended the economic sanctions (15 total million plus 5% of premiums). In the European system, the decisions of a judge are effective throughout the territory and therefore UEFA had no choice but to obey. Today the investigation into Juve, Real and Barça is formally closed.
The decision lends itself to multiple readings. For the Super League it is a victory, for UEFA it is only a formal and obligatory measure, awaiting developments and above all for the EU Court of Justice to rule on the case. Nyon plans to reopen the disciplinary procedure, while reiterating its no to the Superlega project. EU judges in Luxembourg are awaiting opinions from all interested parties by October 15, more or less the same day Judge Ruiz de Lara leaves his post at the Madrid Court. And that of the Court will be the binding decision for all.
