Kenyon admits Chelsea not interested in G14

Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon has confirmed they're not interested in joining the G14.

G14 were planning to expand from 18 to 40 clubs, but speaking at the International Football Arena conference in Zurich, the Chelsea chief executive said: "European football has changed a lot since the formation of G14, when there was no real dialogue between the clubs and UEFA.

"Now the situation is different. There are a lot of major issues to discuss and find a resolution to with UEFA.

"Our position is that the clubs would best be served by a new independent club body working together with UEFA within the framework that has already been set up, in co-operation with them.

"So if we were to be officially invited to join an expanded G14, I think we would politely decline."
