UEFA could review the controversial rule that saw Tottenham miss out on the Champions League.
Spurs were left heartbroken after missing out on a place in Europe’s top club competition next season despite finishing fourth, due to Chelsea winning the tournament.
UEFA president Michel Platini said no rule change to the competition could be brought in for at least three years but that UEFA would be prepared to review the regulation.
Speaking in Budapest before the FIFA Congress, Platini told the Press Association: “We can always change the rules. We can always discuss the rules, but not during the competition.
“We have decided not to change the rules or regulations of the competition for three years. So in three years we can change, that means we will come back if you wish.
“Everything can be discussed, the rules, yellow cards, but not during the competition. Perhaps in the next executive committee we can speak about it. I can put that, but they may say no.”
