Gianni Infantino says the incredible comeback by Barca in the UCL shows that changes to the game shouldn't be made hastily.

The referee who officiated Paris Saint-Germain's 6-1 Champions League defeat to Barcelona will not be suspended for his performance, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has said.

Shaka Hislop makes the argument that a departure from the Champions League could help Barcelona's La Liga title chances.

United Kingdom's exit from the European Union could cause a "serious problem" with visa issues, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has warned, while suggesting Barcelona's Neymar and Lionel Messi could already face difficulties.

In November, Paris Saint-Germain's Serge Aurier was unable to face Arsenal in the Champions League after the player was denied entry to the UK because of his ongoing appeal against a "convertible" two-month prison sentence.

Ceferin, who heads up the sport's governing body in Europe and also serves as a FIFA vice president, said any measures that would stop players, fans or journalists from attending such an event would put any bid at risk.

The United States, Canada and Mexico have begun informal talks about making a three-way bid to host...
