In an interview with the New York Times , UEFA president , Slovenian Aleksander Ceferin , warned of the possibility that the United Kingdom could veto Messi and Neymar in case the Barça reached the final of The Champions League next June 3 in Cardiff.
“There would be no problem if the authorities did not let in a dangerous criminal, but if we see that players can not enter because they have some kind of ongoing procedure, we will simply think about whether we should play the European competition games there. Neymar and Messi have open procedures;
This year, the Champions League Final is to be played in Cardiff; imagine if they were not let in there.
It’s a bit fat for us if England players can travel anywhere but other teams can not go there. With free movement in Europe, much better, ” Ceferin explained.
The example of Aurier
The president of UEFA set the example of PSG side Aurier , who could not enter England because after assaulting a policeman at a Paris nightclub had an open case. “” It was very sad for me to see how PSG’s Aurier did not let him enter England.
This will be worse when Brexit installs, especially if the reasons were so formal. We could have a serious problem, “warned Ceferin, who did not say that” we would have no problem if a criminal was banned. ”
