UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin declared on Wednesday that the Super League idea is “finished for good or at least for the next 20 years.”
“I don’t like to call it Super League because it’s everything but Super League,” the Slovenian stated following the European Football Federation’s Congress in Vienna.
Last April, twelve of Europe’s greatest clubs signed up for the proposed new competition, but it was cancelled days later after a backlash from their own players and supporters, as well as governments and football’s regulatory organizations.
Nine clubs have withdrawn from the proposal, but Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus are still on board.
Ceferin claimed the trio had no prospect of restarting the Champions League, which was revealed by UEFA the day before.
“For me, this endeavour is finished, at least for the next 20 years.” “I have no idea what will happen later,” Ceferin said during a press briefing.
He refused to comment on the three holdouts’ UEFA disciplinary proceedings.
