This is an investigation likely to cause an uproar. A few months after the events of the Stade de France during the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool, which the Spaniards won 1-0, the discoveries continue to fall. The British newspaper, The Guardian, confirmed, in an investigation published Thursday, that Zeljko Pavlica, the head of security for UEFA, is nothing but the best friend of the head of the body, Aleksander Ceferin.

He was reportedly hired last year to replace Kenny Scott, who has retired, without there being a formal hiring process. What begs the question of his competence since he managed the man on May 28 during the Champions League final, his first major event.
