To the equal that all the world of the football, Aleksander Ceferin does not find a logical answer to justify the incredible classification of the Real Madrid to the final of the Champions League. In an interview with the newspaper 'ACE', the president of the UEFA said to be happy for having deleted the rule of the 'goal visitor', with which the parties of direct elimination "are more interesting". For the final of Paris, the mandator promised more gone in free.

On the classification 'merengue', Ceferin thinks that the of the group directed by Carlo Ancelotti is more than luck. "It will be necessary to ask them how do it. They are a team experienced. Could say that they have had a bit of luck in some parties, but only can have luck in one, no in all", argued a Ceferin that no escatimó praises to Karim Benzema, in his opinion the best player of the whites in this season.

"For me, Benzema is one of the players more infravalorados of the history. Now it is going back more and more recognised, but always has been to the shadow of somebody. It is amazing how this footballer can mark goals. It finds the way, even when it seems impossible to annotate. It is an impressive player", expressed the president of the UEFA. On the final, the esloveno informed that they will give more free entrances "to show them to inflate them that we are here for them".

On the Superliga, the maximum leader of the European football went back to manifest his rejection to a project that considers finish. "It surprised me the fault of reaction of the fans of the FC Barcelona, that always considered a popular club. I do not know of how many partners are speaking, but the fans were used to to go to the General Assembly and give his opinion on the decisions. However, that time, his reaction was not very strong. Now no longer it matters", it manifested Ceferin.

The relation of the UEFA with Barça, Madrid and Juventus

After the failure of the Superliga, Ceferin does not see problem in keeping the professional relations with formality as up to now. "It would not drag to the clubs to this, since they are much bigger that his presidents, of the same way that the UEFA is bigger that his president; but, in effect, our personal relations do not exist", puntualizó the mandator, the one who no descartó possible sanctions for Barça, Madrid and Juventus in the future.

"We finish to receive the decision of the Mercantile Court of Madrid with measures cautelares. I trust the authorities and the Spanish courts. We will see which raisin. The most important for the UEFA is to show that the rules are the same for all. All have to respect the norms and all have to respect to the other. Of the 247 members of the Association of European Clubs (ECA, by his acronyms in English), 244 clubs are of the same side that we, what means something", sentenced the esloveno.
