UEFA President Sets Out Vision for European Football

FIFA president Gianni Infantino

Ceferin says UEFA will do "everything possible" to bring the 2030 World Cup to Europe, adding that Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules will be revised to make the game of football better and fairer for all.

Ceferin was elected as UEFA's 7th president in September 2016.

Unopposed for the UEFA presidency, he was elected by the acclamation of delegates from Europe's 55 football associations at the governing body's 43rd annual congress in Rome.

The 51-year-old lawyer took over two and a half years ago after the corruption scandal that toppled his predecessor, Frenchman Michel Platini.

The FA chairman Greg Clarke has been elected as Britain's new Federation Internationale de Football Association vice-president in what should be a boost for a potential English-led bid for the 2030 World Cup. In addition, it sets the foundations and structure required to ensure, that together with UEFA, we meet the challenges the game faces to support its continued long-term growth.

Vowing to build on recent successes and developments in European football, including the launch of the continent's Nations League, he said: "The most risky thing we could do is to rest on our laurels and bask in our current situation".

Vanessa Tyson , alleges that he forced her to perform a sexual act at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. And I wanted him to know, unequivocally that I had nothing to do with it".

He immediately promised a dramatic overhaul of European club competitions.

Speaking after UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin aimed strong words at him, Infantino said "it's not always easy" for him to work so that "the rest of the world can catch up a little bit" to European soccer. "My answer is no", said Ceferin.

In response FIFA president Gianni Infantino, who harbours his own aspirations of an expanded Club World Club, said that football's biggest players would be banned from the World Cup if they played in a breakaway European Super League.

The other teams that are in the last 16 of the Champions League include Ajax, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City, Manchester United, Porto, Real Madrid and Tottenham. "Not by me, but by the individual bodies".

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.

"This is only the start".
