UEFA president “worried” about AC Milan’s finances, updates Neymar, PSG investigation

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin gave an in depth interview to La Repubblica this morning in which he touched on a number of subjects, ranging from the Italian national team, to AC Milan’s concerning ownership, and even the investigation into PSG’s acquisition into Neymar.

ON ITALY MISSING THE WORLD CUP:
“For a country so passionate about football, it’s a tragedy, but the Netherlands has also missed the European. It’s an opportunity to change things that do not go.”

ON ITALIAN SOCCER INFRASTRUCTURE:
“Italy is behind the big European countries. Without infrastructure no young players are created and no talent is brought in. It’s clear that projects are needed, with local partners, for new camps and sports centers. Today, Italy cannot host a big tournament due to its poor infrastructure and obsolete stadiums.”

ON INVESTIGATING PSG’S ACQUISITION OF NEYMAR:
“I cannot say a lot as there is an ongoing investigation. A decision should be made before next season, but PSG can spend freely this winter.”

ON THE MYSTERY SURROUNDING AC MILAN’S CHINESE OWNER:
“We’re working, I cannot say anything. I’m worried, but let’s see what’s going on.”
