Ceferin has made it clear that the clubs that created the Super league Europe will have to bear the consequences. In an interview with the English newspaper ‘Daily Mirror’, the president of the UEFA He assured that the hand must be tougher for Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Juventus.
“Everyone has to bear the consequences of what they did and we cannot pretend that nothing happened. You can’t just say ‘they are punishing me because everyone hates me’. They have no problems with anyone else. It is not good and we will see in the next few days what we can do ”, he explained.
But Ceferin says there are differences between the 12 founding clubs. “There is a clear difference between the English clubs and the other six. They retired first, they admitted they made a mistake. You have to have some greatness to say ‘I was wrong’ ”. “For me there are three groups: the English, who left first, the other three (Atlético de Madrid, Milan and Inter) and then those who think that the ground is flat and who think that the Superliga still exists (Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Juventus). There is a big difference between them. But everyone will have to be held accountable, we’ll see how ”.
Ceferin was again very critical of Andrea Agnelli, former president of the Association of European Clubs and leader of Juventus. “I felt like they put me in a washing machine. On Saturday I went to Switzerland from my country (Slovenia), it was 8 hours by car. I was ready to talk about the reforms in my speech and there were also words of thanks to Agnelli. I had to change the speech four times. Agnelli was lying to me, he told me ‘It’s not true, it’s not true…’ In the end it happened. “
