But at the UEFA Congress on Wednesday, Ceferin said the Premier League should be applauded not attacked for its success.
The Slovenian said: “We must never forget that jealousy has never been a good counselor.
“A few months ago, UEFA and its club competitions were being blamed for all the evils in football and the inequalities within the leagues. Today, it’s the English Premier League that seems to be under attack.
“Since the British government, supporters, and clubs said no to the Super League, the Premier League has been demonized and labeled a Super League in its own right that needs to be toppled.NYSC Portal
“However, the Premier League’s success was not achieved by accident. By adopting an audacious approach based on a vision, a strategy, and a lot of hard work, its leaders and clubs developed a remarkable model founded on sporting merit and a highly egalitarian distribution of wealth – one of the most egalitarian systems in the world.
He added: “Let me reassure those who fear that English football will crush everything that stands in its way. The figures do not lie: in the last 20 years, the Champions League has been won on five occasions by English clubs. JAMB Result
