Michel Platini hits out at UEFA President

Former UEFA President Michel Platini has hit out on Aleksander Ceferin over how he handled the Super League saga.

Ceferin called on the suspension of the teams that were involved in the proposed league and according to Platini, the move was ill-advised.

“This conflict makes me laugh. For 50 years, clubs have been trying to change the formula of European competition, and this time they almost succeeded. But there was a strong reaction from the fans and the press, so it was shut down. The people and the media did what UEFA couldn’t; unite the clubs,” Platini is quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

While most of the clubs who were involved in the formation of the league have pulled out, Real Madrid, Juventus, and Barcelona are still committed and released a joint statement last month after UEFA had threatened to sue them.

Platini's sentiments came on a day that UEFA suspended disciplinary proceedings against the three clubs. It had been suggested there would be a two-year Champions League ban for the three clubs alongside a substantial fine.
