A Champions League featuring clubs who aren’t champions has always seemed a bit of a misnomer to me.
And the fact that 5/9 finals have been the equivalent of domestic games would reenforce that.
Taking the clubs that finished 3/4 in each group and putting them in the Europa League to try again is ridiculous and creating a new format seems just as daft.
Managers moan about too many games yet they are all scrabbling to finish in a “European Spot”. So what happens? The domestic game suffers.
And ultimately the fans.
