UEFA Executive Clears Rocky Relations with Juventus Chief: “It’s the Past”

UEFA chief executive Aleksander Ceferin once maintained a close relationship with Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, but ever since plans for the European Super League came into the picture, the duo have experienced a rocky association. Juventus are one of the three protagonists, along with El Clasico rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid for heading the highly controversial elite and monopolistic league.

The Slovenian executive spoke to Italian outlet Corriere della Sera in an extensive interview, wherein he spoke about a plethora of topics, including UEFA’s new format for the Champions League in the future. However, it was his comments regarding Agnelli that grabbed attention, as he looked to put recent happenings in the past.

“UEFA and Juve are two institutions: they will always have correct relations. I don’t want to say a word about the person you nominated anymore, it’s the past,” he commented. (via TUTTOmercatoweb)

The person he was referring to was none other than the Juventus chief, who was on the end of some harsh words by Ceferin and La Liga president Javier Tebas during a recent event.

However, Agnelli remains confident of his Super League plans, alongside Joan Laporta and Florentino Perez.
