UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin talked to German newspaper Der Spiegel and shared his thoughts about the Superleague project, which still has the support and commitment from Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus.

“I would not mind if they [Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus] left. It is very funny that they want to create a new competition and at the same time they want to play in the Champions League this season. These three clubs simply have incompetent leaders. Those guys [Florentino Perez, Joan Laporta and Andrea Agnelli] have tried to kill football,” said Ceferin.

Being the person behind the whole project, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez received some more strong words from Ceferin in this interview.

“He is criticizing UEFA and saying that the club can only survive with a Super League and then is trying to sign Kylian Mbappe for 180 million euros,” added UEFA’s president.

As you can see, Real Madrid’s relationship with UEFA is expected to be quite tense during the next few months and the same can be said about Barcelona and Juventus. These three clubs are still working for the Superleague to go ahead as planned in the near future and Ceferin and the rest of UEFA will surely try their best to prevent that from happening.
