Alexander Ceferin criticizes the termination of League 1. He said the season was stopped very soon.
As you know, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the French government ordered the end of Ligue 1. The local football federation obeyed the order, and the PSG was titled champions.
The problems are not over. Lyon and other clubs have started litigation. But no radical changes are likely to happen.
The President of UEFA, Alexander Ceferin, responded to the end of League 1:
“The decision was premature. In my personal opinion, the championship ended very soon. This is not an ideal decision because the situation may improve, and the game may become possible again, “he said.
Recall that Ceferin will soon present a new plan. There is an assumption that football matches will end without fans. It was also said that this restriction would affect the games of the League of Nations.
Ceferin is hopeful – Europe is waiting for a new plan.
In an interview with BeIN Sports, Alexander Ceferin said that UEFA has a specific plan, and therefore the matches in most of the championships will be resumed.
“We have a specific plan for the end of the season. I think that in most leagues the season will end, those who will not do it are their choice. But they will have to play in the qualifying round if they want to compete in the European Cups, ”he said.
At the end of the conversation, he added that all the details would be discussed at the meeting of the Executive Committee. According to him, the suspended season will not affect the calendar for 2020-2021.
