The profoundly shocking way Uefa mishandled its Champions League final on 28 May has prompted alarming questions about the organisation and its president Aleksander Ceferin and, by natural extension, the whole edifice governing modern football.

The reality, though, is that Uefa is a member organisation; the confederation, to use football’s jargon, of Europe’s 55 national associations, including the English FA.

Uefa may still be that great institution, formed in 1954 to organise the European Cup and still 68 years on, thanks to last year’s defeat of the Super League breakaway, organisers of the glittering Champions League.

“When we were at war with the Super League, we were helped by English fans.

But then when the first Champions League final with a crowd was held since English fans saved Uefa’s billions and Ceferin’s world, Uefa took no responsibility for the near-disaster.

Just weeks before that, Ceferin had been still full of praise for English fans and, with Liverpool’s supporters prominent leaders, their campaign to fight the Super League, which preserved the immensely lucrative Champions League for Uefa.

David Bernstein, the FA’s chairman from 2011-14, now a critic of the system and campaigning for an independent football regulator, confirmed that perception from his experience.
