UEFA have relented and are allowing Liverpool to defend their Champions League title next season. Liverpool will have to go through all the qualifying rounds, and will not be restricted from potentially playing against other Premiership sides.

UEFA have also changed the Champions League rules so that in the event of a similar situation arising again where the winners of the Champions League have failed to qualify for the next season, then the fourth qualifying team will have to give up their place for the defending champions.
