UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin (55) in the new Super League documentary on Apple TV+.

On January 13, Super League: The Football War begins – or as it was originally called, Super League: The Football War, Čeferin’s War for Football!

In four episodes, the new series (Apple TV+ offers a seven-day trial subscription, after which the monthly plan is 6.99 euros) reveals how Juventus Turin, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are doing everything backwards. plan to create a new Super League by installing European football. And thus divide the association, the club and the fan scene to the breaking point. The bomb went off in the spring of 2021 – and the documentary cameras are close at hand.

BILD previewed the series, which almost looks like a James Bond movie. Here are some highlights:

► What hardly anyone knows: UEFA boss Čeferin is godfather to the daughter of former Juve boss and Super League string puller Andrea Agnelli (47). The two have a close friendship which broke down due to league plans, legal action against Čeferin and UEFA.

Čeferin settles accounts with his friend: “A snake! And: “I have never seen a person who lies so much.” I was blind because he was my friend. I realized it was a betrayal. I erased this person from my life.

► The synonym W01 often appears in secret Super League diaries. An unknown league supporter — who will be revealed in the fourth episode of the documentary as Fifa President Gianni Infantino (52)!

As a result, the controversial Fifa boss is said to have pledged support for Super League sides if they financially support and attend his Club World Cup. Behind it is: Infantino is reportedly angry that Čeferin and UEFA are blocking his idea of ​​a World Cup every two years – and apparently wants revenge.

Barca boss Joan Laporta reveals: “Infantino was more open to talks than UEFA.”

Javier Tebas, the Spanish Premier League boss and big opponent in the Super League, reveals: “I spoke to clubs who were involved, with really strong teams. As a result, the clubs demanded the following for their support : you support us with the Super League and we play for it in your Club World Cup – and thus kill the Champions League!And we all knew that Infantino wanted to kill Čeferin – politically speaking.

► From a German point of view, it is striking: FC Bayern only plays a small role! The German record champions aren’t really mentioned for the first time until after the one hour and 45 minute run of the documentary.

Čeferin: “We knew that Bayern had been invited to this elite event.”

Secret contracts stipulate that Bavaria have 30 days to join the league.

Dr Michael Gerlinger, Munich’s legal director and vice-president of club association ECA: “One would have to assume that they want a team like Bayern Munich to be in the Super League. We never got that supposed date limit to join us. It seems to us that they want to put pressure on us to be there.

Like Paris St-Germain, Bayern still refuse to get involved in the project.

Čeferin: “Juve and Real raced to find clubs that would participate! They didn’t know how much time they had for the battle. Bayern and PSG were invited to be there. But they refused! I told them says: you are on the right side of history.

After that, Bayern are hardly a problem until the end. Borussia Dortmund doesn’t matter.

► On April 19, 2021, the Super League bombshell goes off and the top clubs involved reveal themselves and their plans to the public.

Čeferin: “They came out like vampires in the middle of the night. It was the first time I knew which teams were there. Of course, I was disappointed. Pathetic! With that, they spit football in the face .

UEFA boss attack announcement: ‘We will fight them with everything we have!’

Besides Juve, Real and Barca, the 12 teams included the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ (Chelsea, Liverpool, ManUnited, ManCity, Arsenal, Tottenham). They first got involved, only to back down under pressure from politicians and fans – and thus also ensured the breakout of the project last year. UEFA’s legal threat to expel all clubs and ban players from all competitions also played a big role in this.

★★★

Juve, Real and Barca are still working hard in the background to realize their Super League plans, relying on Germany’s Bernd Reichart, who yearns for a new dialogue between the teams and UEFA with his sports management agency A22, in order to find a peaceful and mutually satisfactory solution.
