Man Utd risk ban from Europe next season over Ratcliffe’s takeover

Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s recent acquisition of a minority stake in Manchester United may potentially result in the club being barred from participating in European competitions next season.

UEFA’s regulations on multi-club ownership suggest that clubs owned by the same entity cannot compete in the same tournament.

Despite this, UEFA has adjusted their rules to permit clubs under common ownership to play in different European competitions starting next season.

Nonetheless, the prohibition on these teams participating in the same tournament still stands.

Ratcliffe also owns OGC Nice, currently ranked fifth in Ligue 1.

“It is correct that Manchester United and Nice cannot play in the same competition.

“They could play in different competitions, as there is no ‘feeding’ between competitions any more,” a UEFA insider is quoted as telling the Sun.
