Aleksander Ceferin, President of the European Football Associations Association (UEFA), said that for him there is no longer a problem called the European Super League.
Ceferin, who participated in the International Sports Writers Association (AIPS) Congress held in Rome, the capital of Italy, made evaluations on current issues.
Ceferin said that when the idea of the Super League first came out, it was very difficult for him. “I even got threatening messages. I have no affiliation with Perez or Agnelli. We greeted each other in the Champions League final and sat next to each other because UEFA is not my personal property. Finalists always sit next to the UEFA president.” said.
Reminding that Spain’s Real Madrid Club President Florentino Perez brought up the European Super League project again and insisted on this project, Ceferin said, “We talked about this Super League for a long time. There is no such problem for me anymore.” used the phrase.
Ceferin pointed out that this project does not want to encounter small clubs and that the whole European model should be changed, adding that this would be a huge mistake and he did not want to talk about it.
The UEFA President also said that European football is more unified today than it has ever been in the past.
On the other hand, Ceferin noted that he will be a candidate for the presidency of UEFA again, that he has received 55 letters of support so far and that he will probably enter the race as the only candidate.
