Liverpool withdrew their plans to join a proposed European Super League and could face punishment for their actions according to UEFA’s president Aleksander Ceferin

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has insisted that clubs involved in the proposed European Super League will have to be punished.
Liverpool were one of 12 clubs that agreed to be founding members of the new competition, before withdrawing less than 48 hours later.
The Reds, along with the other five English clubs; Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City and Tottenham, withdrew on the same day, while others across Europe gradually did the same.
FSG chief and Liverpools principal owner John W. Henry publicly apologised to Jurgen Klopp, the players and the staff in a video released the morning after the club confirmed their withdrawal from the plans.

Ceferin did not hide his anger when news surfaced of the proposed new competition, and now talk has shifted to if and how clubs involved will be punished for trying to form a Super League.
The UEFA chief has not ruled out clubs being punished, but insists it is still too early to say what will happen.
Lets see, Ceferin told the Daily Mail
, when asked if the likes of Liverpool will be punished.
Everyone has to take consequences for what they did and we cannot pretend nothing happened.
You cannot do something like that and just say: Ive been punished because everybody hates me.
They dont have problems because of anyone else but themselves. Its not OK what they did and we will see in the next few days what we have to do.

But for me its a clear difference between the English clubs and the other six. They pulled out first, they admitted they made a mistake.
You have to have some greatness to say: I was wrong.
For me there are three groups of this 12 the English Six, who went out first, then the other three [Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, Inter] after them and then the ones who feel that Earth is flat and they think the Super League still exists.
And there is a big difference between those. But everyone will be held responsible. In what way, we will see.
I dont want to say disciplinary process but it has to be clear that everyone has to be held responsible in a different way.
Is it disciplinary? Is it the decision of the executive committee? We will see. Its too early to say.
