Uefa looks for continuity as Čeferin nominated for re-election

Uefa president Aleksander Čeferin has been formally nominated for re-election by eight of the European football governing body’s member federations.

Čeferin (pictured) replaced the disgraced Michel Platini, who was banned from football by the Fifa Ethics Committee for financial wrongdoing, as Uefa president in 2016. He has been viewed as bringing stability to the organisation after the scandals that rocked global football during that period and it is thought his candidacy would offer much-needed continuity to Uefa.
