Champions League

Ceferin welcomes Manchester City back into European football family

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has formally welcomed Manchester City back into the European football family, and praised their decision to withdraw from the Super League.

After Sunday’s announcement of the breakaway competition, protests and criticism rained down from public figure, governments and players over the move.

“I am delighted to welcome City back to the European football family,” Ceferin said in a statement.

“They have shown great intelligence in listening to the many voices – most notably their fans – that have spelled out the vital benefits that the current system has for the whole of European football; from the world beating Champions League final right down to a young player’s first coaching session at a grassroots club.

“It takes courage to admit a mistake but I have never doubted that they had the ability and common sense to make that decision. City are a real asset for the game and I am delighted to be working with them for a better future for the European game.”
