Aleksander Ceferin Re-elected For Another Four Years As UEFA President

UEFA president, Aleksander Ceferin has been re-elected as the president of the association for another four years term. This unopposed re-election of Ceferin was held in Rome at the governing body’s annual congress. He succeeded Michel Platini in 2016 after being voted in by the acclamation from the delegates of the 55 member associations of UEFA. The Slovenian has been upfront with pushing some of the agenda of the association, he upon the re-election vowed to work alongside European Club Association leader Andrea Agnelli to protect the Champions League from a breakaway from the ‘Super League’ of elite clubs. He was quoted to have said that: “It’s not a promise, it’s a fact. Major clubs, if you had carried out your alleged plan, your clubs would have lost their status as ‘great clubs’ in the hearts of the people. The only thing ‘great’ about you would have been your past, and nothing else. By respecting the football pyramid, the promotion and relegation system that lies at the heart of our sporting culture, results on the pitch, which sometimes differ from those in the account books, you remain great clubs in the world’s eyes” said Ceferin.Photo Credit: Getty
