UEFA drops case against ESL rebels

UEFA says that it is dropping its disciplinary case against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus over their involvement in the controversial European Super League, to comply with a ruling from a Madrid court.

European football's governing body said late Monday that "the proceedings (are) null and void, as if the proceedings had never been opened".

UEFA, which had been pursuing the three clubs over what it called a potential violation of UEFA's legal framework, also said that it "will not request payment" from the other nine clubs including English sides Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United.
