Asked by the BBC about the reaction of Real Madrid and La Liga after Kylian Mbappé’s extension to Paris Saint-Germain, Aleksander Ceferin said he was “tired” of these multiple accusations. The UEFA president continues to assert that the body that governs European football will not let its actions be dictated. Aleksander Ceferin’s turn to discuss Kylian Mbappé’s extension. The UEFA president did not give his opinion on the Paris Saint-Germain forward’s decision, like Francesco Totti, but spoke about the reactions of La Liga and Real Madrid since last Saturday. As a reminder, La Liga decided to file a complaint after this extension, denouncing the financial surface of PSG which “threatens football”. of Mbappé as an “insult to football”. Reproaches that “tired” Ceferin, as the UEFA president explained to BBC Sports on Wednesday. “All those who respect our rules are welcome to play in our competitions, those who do not respect these rules are not,” said the Slovenian leader. While Tebas and La Liga have attacked the Parisian model and therefore the Qatari owners of the club, Ceferin defended these de facto state-run teams. This is also the case with Manchester City, under the Emirati flag, and Newcastle, which has been under the Saudi flag for a few months.” Real’s offer was the same as that of PSG” “You say that the clubs belong to the supporters, but there are English clubs that are owned by Americans, owners from the Middle East, others from England. So it’s exactly the same situation and I’m really tired of these baseless accusations,” Ceferin explained. Above all, the UEFA boss claimed that “neither Real Madrid nor anyone else will tell UEFA what to do”. “They are outraged, from their point of view, but from what I know their offer was the same as PSG’s,” Ceferin also underlined. A pass of arms which will not improve the already very fresh relations between the president of UEFA and his counterpart from Real, Florentino Pérez.
