Manchester United could be banned from playing in European competitions next season as UEFA rules that clubs under the same ownership cannot compete against each other in such competitions, according to ‘The Sun’. Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who recently acquired a minority stake in the Red Devils, also owns OGC Nice.

According to ‘The Sun’, UEFA rules do not allow both clubs under the same ownership to compete against each other in the same European competition, something that could directly affect the Mancunian club.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe recently acquired a minority stake in the English club, and it is worth remembering that the owner of INEOS also has a stake in OGC Nice.

Ten Hag’s team would now be qualified for the Conference League, as Liverpool, who earned their ticket for it after beating Chelsea in the final of the Carabao Cup, are almost certain to play in the Champions League next season, so the English team’s place in the Conference League would go to the highest-ranked team outside the European competition, Manchester United.

Francesco Farioli’s side would also qualify for the next edition of that competition as they sit fifth in Ligue 1, and in the event that two clubs under the same ownership have to play in the same European competition, it would be the one that is ranked higher in their respective league that would be entitled to appear in the European competition.

In conclusion, the fact is that the French club is currently leaving the Old Trafford outfit out of the Conference League.
