Aleksander Čeferin do te jete President i ri i UEFA-s. Ish-Presidenti i Federates Sllovene te Futbollit fitoi zgjedhjet pas votimit qe u be ne Kongresin e UEFA-s te po zhvillohet ne Athine. 48 vjecari Aleksander Čeferin morri 42 vota, ndersa rivali i tij per kete post Presidenti i Federates Hollandeze Michael Van Praag morri 13 vota. Aleksander Čeferin zevendesoi ne kete post ish Presidentin Michel Platini i cili eshte denuar nga gjykata sportive CAS ne Lozane per nje periudhe 5 vjecare. FSHF ne kete Kongres perfaqesohej nga Presidenti i saj Armondo Duka, ndersa Federata Kosovare e Futbollit Fadil Vokrri. Pas votimit Presidenti i FSHF Armando Duka uroi Aleksander Čeferin. “Ju uroj per detyren e larte, qe ju besoi ky kongres dhe shpresoj qe ne drejtimin tuaj institucioni i futbollit europian, te ece perpara drejt sukseseve te reja”. Interesant eshte fakti qe ne kete Kongres ish presidenti Michel Plati i akuzuar per korrupsion u paraqit perpara delegateve me leje te posaqme nga FIFA. Ai theksoi edhe nje hete faktin qe eshte i pafajshem. Pavaresisht nga deklaratat e tij Michel Plati nuk do te jete pjese e futbollit per pese vitet e ardheshme, duke shuar keshtu “yllin” qe shkelqente ne fushat e blerta ne menyre shume te keqe. Gjithashtu mesohet se FSHF dhe FFK votuan ne favor te Aleksander Čeferin.
Čeferin elected as UEFA President
by Mark Chaplin from Athens/
Aleksander Čeferin has been elected as UEFA’s seventh President at the European body’s Extraordinary Congress in Athens.
The 48-year-old Slovenian received 42 votes from UEFA’s member associations, against 13 votes for the other candidate, Michael van Praag (Netherlands).
In taking the helm of European football, Čeferin follows Ebbe Schwartz (Denmark), Gustav Wiederkehr (Switzerland), Artemio Franchi (Italy), Jacques Georges (France), Lennart Johansson (Sweden) and Michel Platini (France), who have all served as UEFA President since the body was founded in 1954.
Čeferin was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia on 13 October 1967. A graduate of Ljubljana University’s law faculty, he went on to work for his family’s law firm and developed a special interest in representing professional athletes and sports clubs. He later took over the role of company director.
He first took a formal interest in local football in 2005 through his work with the executive board of KMN Svea Lesna Litija, one of Slovenia’s most successful futsal clubs. He has also been a member of the executive committee of amateur side FC Ljubljana Lawyers since 2005.
A married father of three, fluent in English and Italian, Čeferin was elected as Football Association of Slovenia president in 2011. He has also served as a second and third vice-chairman of the UEFA Legal Committee since 2011.(UEFA.com)
