Ed Woodward and Manchester United have backed a new European Super League (Getty)


UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has called Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward a ‘snake’ over his push to form a breakaway European Super League. 


United are one of the 12 clubs who have put forward a proposal to drop out of the UEFA-run Champions League and Europa League and begin a new European Super League.


UEFA has threatened to ban players who participate in the European Super League from playing for their national teams at World Cup and European Championship tournaments. 


Meanwhile, United’s move has been met with widespread anger from supporters, while Gary Neville branded his former club a ‘disgrace’ over their decision to form a new European Super League with only a select group of teams. 


And now UEFA’s president has heavily criticised Woodward and claims United’s executive vice-chairman showed gave no indication that a breakaway league was being planned.


‘If I start with Ed Woodward, he called me last Thursday evening saying he’s very satisfied with and fully supports the reforms and the only thing he want to talk about was FFP [Financial Fair Play], when obviously he had already signed something else,’ said Ceferin.


UEFA’s president also took aim at Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli, who has since resigned as president of the European Club Association. 


‘Andrea Agnelli is the biggest disappointment of all,’ said Ceferin. ‘I’ve never seen a person that would lie so many times, so persistently as he did. ‘


It’s unbelievable. We didn’t know we had snakes so close to us. Now we know.


‘These are so-called big clubs, it is clear that the big clubs of today were not always big clubs. Juventus were in Serie B, Man United before Sir Alex Ferguson was I don’t know where. 


‘Why are they creating this? Because they are not managed right. 


‘I am happy this has happened, finally. Now you see who is who. You see who loves football, who is in football for the love of the game.’
