UEFA says it will look at adapting its regulations to help clubs should the financial crisis in Greece turn "really bad."

Speaking after UEFAs executive committee met in Prague on Tuesday, general secretary Gianni Infantino says clubs in Greece "could find themselves in a very difficult situation due to something they're not responsible for."

A bailout program for Greece ends on Tuesday, and it was unlikely that Athens would make a 1.6 billion euro ($1.8 billion) repayment to the International Monetary Fund.

He said Greek clubs have not yet approached UEFA with any request for help.

Discussing Financial Fair Play rules, Infantino says, "This could be one of these cases which can be foreseen in the future regulations, yes."
