On Wednesday, the European Club Association officially announced the election of a new president. Nasser Al-Khelaifi will serve for the next three years. Earlier, Andrea Agnelli, who resigned as ECA chairman three days ago, was due to his role in the newly formed Super League. The association emphasized that PSG did not participate in the creation of the game.
-I am honored to nominate my colleague from the ECA board of directors to serve as chairman. At this point, the leadership, integrity and unity of our organization have never been more important than European football. Nasser Al-Khelaifi announced that I will be unconditionally committed to the entire football community: that is, to all ECA member clubs in every country in Europe, as well as the fans and communities they represent.
The unity of European clubs is one of the main issues he advocates, including UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin (Aleksander Ceferin). Superliga is formed by 12 clubs-the founders of the club are from Sunday night to Monday night. However, on Tuesday, the process of its rapid disintegration began. In the end, on Wednesday, the only members were Real Madrid and Barcelona Football Club, and they would only join if the community (members of the club) reached a consensus in the referendum.
-After the unprecedented events of the past few days attempting to weaken European society, ECA welcomes its former member club’s decision not to promote the Super League project. The statement said that ECA firmly believes that the project will not succeed, because the core of football is openness, sports excellence and the internal connection between everyone in the entire football family.
It is worth noting that one of the vice-chairmen of the ECA is Dariusz Mioduski, the owner of Legia Warszawa. The remaining seats are appointed by Edwin Van der Sar (Ajax Amsterdam), Aki Richlahti (HJK Helsinki) and Michael Gerlinger (Bayern Munich) appointed as the first vice-chairman.
