Bayern Munich’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is to replace the breakaway Andrea Agnelli as representative of the European club association ECA on the UEFA Executive Committee. The ECA announced on Monday.
The ECA is entitled to two places there, one of which is held by club boss Nasser al-Khelaifi of Paris St. Germain.
Agnelli, boss of the Italian record champions Juventus Turin, resigned from the UEFA executive and from the top of the ECA on Monday after the founding of the Super League. The ECA has also positioned itself against the Super League, of which Juve is a founding member.
UEFA President Ceferin then didn’t let Agnelli get down to it. “He’s the biggest disappointment of all. I’ve never met a person who lied so much,” said Ceferin.
In his role as head of the ECA, Agnelli was instrumental in planning the reform of the Champions League.
