ROME (Ekstra Bladet): Without opposition, without debate, and therefore also without any form of criticism was sloveneren Aleksander Ceferin at the congress in Rome re-elected as president of UEFA.
People clapped just. But Ceferin had also promised to milliarderne will flow into UEFA's coffers in the coming years. When he thanked for the election, he promised to provide the WORLD cup to Europe in 2030.
the More unrest there was before the congress about Nasser Al-Khelaifis appearance in the UEFA’s executive committee. Al-Khelaifi from Qatar and chairman of Qatar Sportsinvesteringsfond, which was behind the acquisition of the French club PSG, which is his way into the engine room in european football.
the PSG is in the association of european clubs (ECA), and in UEFA's most recent congress it was decided that the ECA has the right to appoint two persons to the UEFA executive committee.
they went to The Juventus-owner, Andrea Agnelli, and the executive director of Arsenal Ivan Gazidis. But since Gazidis has since switched to AC Milan, and then Italy can not have two seats, the ECA decided to appoint Al-Khelaifi for the vacant place in the UEFA.
at the same time, UEFA is examining whether the PSG has violated UEFA's rules on financial fair play, when the club, for the astronomical amount of money, bought players like Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.
It was, however, no one at the congress in Rome to raise her voice. Also Al-Khelaifi was folded in, and at the subsequent press conference rejected the Ceferin to comment on UEFA's investigation of the PSG.
However, he would like to relate to the struggle that is going on between UEFA and FIFA. The cam is the FIFA president Gianni Infantinos plans for a new expanded club WORLD cup and a new nationsturnering. In more than a year has Ceferin blocked the plans, among other things, because Infantino is not going to tell who it is that is willing to throw the $ 25 billion in the two tournaments.
- I don't know what tournaments we will have about two or four years. But the status is that we have not received any information from FIFA the last years of the two tournaments. I know nothing, but I have a feeling that soon we are going to talk about it.
- must All be able to see that we are not going anywhere without that we get the information. It is not a war, we walk in, but it is a problematic situation, said Ceferin on the relationship between the UEFA and the FIFA.
UEFA fear, to an enlarged club WORLD cup can go besides the Champions League, which is one of european football's governing body really big golden egg.
The lack of information from FIFA about the two new tournaments are also the reason for the DBU and the other nordic football federation have not signed a statement of support for Gianni Infantino, who is on the election at FIFA's congress in June in Paris.
however, He is chosen under all circumstances. There is no opposition.
