No words with Agnelli after Super League announcement - Ceferin

The announcement of the Super League project caused a big war between football directors in Europe.

UEFA president Alexandre


has confirmed that he did not speak to Andrea Agnelli after the announcement of the Super League project and criticized Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola.

Last year, the presidents of

Real Madrid





and several Premier League teams announced their intention to participate in the Super League project. Agnelli was one of the most influential people in organizing this project and played an important role in it. The project was strongly opposed by UEFA, and many teams withdrew from the project.


had a close relationship with Agnelli but now claimed that he had not spoken to the Juventus boss after the announcement of the project.

“Nothing with Agnelli, I met Perez and respected the protocol. UEFA is not my property, so we sat close to each other during the Champions League Final in Paris and I congratulated him, that’s all,”

Ceferin said.

“UEFA is not a monopoly. Clubs can decide to be included or not, whether to play in our competitions or organise their own. But in that case, they can’t play in our tournaments, that’s logic, right?

“The [Super League] project is dead because nobody wants to take part in it. I only see three people angry with everyone else and taking everyone else to court, but now it’s finished.”

Asked about his strong bonds with PSG president 

Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Ceferin said: "

I am not on good terms with the PSG President but with ECA President. He is one who understood and defended the European model, differently from other European clubs.”

Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp criticized UEFA for their high number of games this season but 



“It’s easy always to attack FIFA and UEFA, but the thing is simple. If you play less, you get less money. Who should complain are the factory workers who get €1,000 per month.”
