United could be reinstated in Champions League

Manchester United could be reinstated in the Champions League.

A threat by FIFA - that could see all Swiss clubs banned from all international football - has apparently opened the door to the possibility that United could be playing in the knockout stages of Europe's top club competition after all, despite being eliminated at the group stage.

According to bookmakers William Hill, the possibility of Sir Alex Ferguson's men being reinstated in the Champions League is a genuine one.

"FIFA are trying to kill off FC Sion's long running legal case against them and has reportedly threatened to ban all Swiss teams from international competition if it isn't resolved by January," said William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe.

United, currently 11/2 second favourites for the Europa League behind Manchester City, are 16/1 to be reinstated in the Champions League.
