Even five months after their temporary failure, Uefa boss Aleksander Ceferin did not let go of the founding of a Super League, again he criticized the clubs involved in all sharpness. “These guys tried to kill football,” said the Slovenian at “Spiegel”.
Some clubs have “simply incompetent bosses,” says Ceferin in the direction of Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Juventus Turin, who still do not want to renounce the project.
Frontal attack on Pérez
“I don’t mind at all if they split off,” says Ceferin. He even thinks it’s “really funny” that these clubs were planning their own tournament at the same time and still wanted to play in the Champions League season.
Ceferin even attacks a club president, Florentino Pérez from Real Madrid, directly. He had “complained that the club could only survive if there was a Super League,” says the Uefa boss. “And now has he tried to buy Kylian Mbappé for 180 million euros?”
Reform planned for FFP
Uefa’s ineffective financial fair play is to be reformed by “the end of the year, at the latest by the end of the current season,” as Ceferin affirmed. It aims to introduce a kind of luxury tax that clubs have to pay when their spending exceeds a certain limit. An upper salary limit has also recently been discussed.
The money from this penalty pot is to be redistributed to other clubs and has to be “very, very high,” says Ceferin, citing a “tax rate” of 100 percent as an example. (afp)
