Čeferin unleashes full volley against Super League ring leaders
UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin has not hesitated in his recent comments on the attempt to create a European Super League and the leaders behind it from their respective haunts in Madrid, Turin and Barcelona.
Čeferin, who called Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli and Barcelona president Joan Laporte “incompetent”, spoke harsh words to the SL leadership when he spoke to Der Spiegel (quotes from MundoDeportivo).
“I wouldn’t mind if they left, it’s very funny that they want to create a new competition and at the same time want to play in the Champions League this season. These guys tried to kill football.
The Slovenian-born UEFA chief has also not been out of step with the idea that Real Madrid are trying to explain their financial difficulties despite some of his transfer wishes last summer, notably involving Kylian Mbappé of Paris. Saint Germain.
“[Pérez] laments and says the club [Real Madrid] can only survive with a Super League and then try to sign Kylian Mbappé for 180 million euros.
All in all, it’s fair to say that Čeferin and the vast majority of the global football community are far from thrilled with a handful of powerful figures who have attempted to hijack the current football landscape in Europe.
Juventus president Andrea Agnelli sidelined by UEFA director at family level
And despite the family tie between Čeferin and Juventus chief Andrea Agnelli, the top UEFA boss has refused to speak to the Italian president following the attempted Super League coup.
When you talk to The temperature, Čeferin has made it clear that he has cut off all communication with Agnelli, despite being the godfather of the Juve boss’s daughter.

The Slovenian also hasn’t hesitated to reflect on the overall situation and how it affected the relationship since Agnelli lied to him about Juve’s involvement;
“He sent two messages with jokes, like nothing had happened, but I didn’t respond. There are times in your life that you judge people halfway, which I obviously did. I’m not ashamed of it … “
With the fallout that may not have come to fruition, especially with the Barcelona president Joan Laporte says Super League dream is not dead, it is a drama which is only at the end of its first act.
