Tottenham responds to UEFA’s decision to exclude them from the Europa Conference League.

Tottenham responds to UEFA’s decision to exclude them from the Europa Conference League.

The club have responded to UEFA’s ruling that awarded Rennes a  3-0 victory because of our postponed fixture.

We were due to play the Rennes game two weeks ago; which would have been our final group game. We would have had to win to progress further in the competition. But the game was called off because of an outbreak of COVID, and UEFA could not reschedule the game for a date that suited both parties.

Today (Monday 20th December), UEFA finally announced that the game will be awarded to Rennes, thus technically knocking us out of the Micky Mouse European competition. Vitesse Arnhem, therefore, qualified for the knockout stages at the expense of us.

We presented several alternative dates to Rennes and were even ready to play the fixture just 24 hours after our game against the Red scousers, but the Frogs rejected all proposed dates.

A Tottenham spokesman said: “We are disappointed by the ruling of the UEFA Appeals Body & the refusal to allow more time for the match to be rescheduled. We have to accept this ruling, however, & our focus now turns to the competitions we remain in.”

Personally

It is a stupid decision on behalf of UEFA’s comedy or errors Department however, the club made a wise decision not to appeal the verdict as we can concentrate better on the League and English Cup competitions.  Not having the disruption of the Conference League would undoubtedly give us a better chance of going further in the FA and League Cups. Sod them, it is their loss!
