UEFA to launch its own streaming service: Ceferin

Aleksander Ceferin, the president of UEFA, was reelected for another four years today and again name-dropped nouveau riche clubs Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain when asked about FFP.

Aleksander Ceferin said that the danger of a Super League had been removed following "honest, direct and uncompromising" discussions between UEFA and the clubs.

While long-standing UEFA-FIFA tensions have continued with these leaders, both first elected in 2016, Ceferin spoke warmly of another ally.

The 51-year-old Slovenian president of the European governing football body was a sole candidate running in the election, which was held during the 43rd Ordinary UEFA Congress in Italy's Rome.

The biggest bone of contention moving forward is the plan of Infantino - now Federation Internationale de Football Association president - to introduce a new, expanded Club World Cup and global Nations League.

"It seems that shortly before my election (in 2016), European clubs were considering a breakaway", he said. "It can only be done if we work together, if we discuss, if we debate", he said.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino, meanwhile, said a task force set up to look at possible formats for the competitions may not complete its report by March as originally scheduled.

At a later news conference, Ceferin said he hadn't been given any "concrete information" on the deal since Infantino revealed it last March at a meeting in Bogota, Colombia.

"I don't know what competitions there will be in two years, four years, ten years but we didn't get any more information that we had in Bogota in March", Ceferin told reporters after UEFA's annual Congress.

Late a year ago UEFA confirmed plans to bring back a third European club competition from 2021/22, which would have 32 teams mainly from smaller member associations. "I am the president of UEFA, a UEFA that can be proud of its past and confident about the future", said Ceferin.

Ceferin defended his record since taking over with his most notable achievement being the introduction of term limits for UEFA presidents, to a maximum of three four-year stints. "We will be doing more in this area because there remain weaknesses in our system".
