In an interview with So Foot, Aleksander Ceferin, president of UEFA, castigates the behavior of Andrea Agnelli, the boss of Juventus, who lied to him before the creation of the Super League.
Aleksander Ceferin still has not digested. A few hours before the launch of the Super League, the UEFA president was still on the phone with Andrea Agnelli, the boss of Juventus, who assured him that the dissident project was absolutely not on track. A month and a half later, this lie still weighs heavily on the relations between the two men, who were however close before.
“In this case, we can classify the protagonists into three categories. I put Andrea Agnelli in the first. There, it’s personal. In my eyes, this man no longer exists,” said Aleksander Ceferin in an interview unveiled on Saturday through So Foot.
“He lied to me right in the face”
“I thought we were friends, but he lied right in my face until the last minute of the last day, making sure there was nothing to worry about, he said. He added. While the day before, he had already signed all the documents necessary for the launch of the Super League.
If he admits all the same to have been able to feed “suspicions” about what was being fomented, the president of the European body defends himself: “When the people who are part of your operational office swear that,” No, no, all that is bullshit “hard not to believe it”.
Coming back to his classification of the protagonists of this affair, Aleksander Ceferin also declared, without naming names: “In the second category, I place a group of leaders whom I considered to be quite close to me and whom I regret that they did not tell me in advance what they were planning to do. Finally, in the last category, there are the leaders with whom I did not have privileged contacts. I do not blame them, but they will have to they too suffer the consequences of their actions “.
