After the disciplinary tribunal imposed a ban from European competitions yesterday, UEFA made it clear to the Football Association on Tuesday that it had exceeded its authority to remove a team after only UEFA could take such a significant step.
This announcement came after the IFA appealed to UEFA to examine who should replace Beitar if the appeal is not accepted – Hapoel Jerusalem, which finished in fourth place, as written in the regulations, or Netanya, which lost the final, and as stated, the answer was that the ICC does not have the authority to do so.

Beitar received the message with satisfaction: "No one will take away from us neither the trophy nor Europe, we earned it honestly on the pitch and UEFA said its thing." Now Beitar will examine the possible punishment, the regulations, and depending on the answers they receive, they will continue or not with their appeal."
