Aleksandr Ceferin’s salary for the 2019/20 season grew by €450k, despite UEFA’s profits plummeting because of the coronavirus pandemic, Vozpopuli report.
UEFA’s president has thus earned €2.2m for the season, up from €1.7m last season. The association he’s been trusted to lead has suffered a 21 per cent revenue fall in the meantime.
And here’s what Ceferin said on the Super League at some point: “Selfishness replaced solidarity. Money became more important than victory, greed more than loyalty.”
We smell some double standards here. With clubs and players around the world taking paycuts to survive financially, Ceferin himself did not feel the effects of the pandemic but was quick to blame others for trying to make money.
