What They're Saying: Aleksander Ceferin

“We were forced to do it but in the end we see that we found out something new. So we will think about it in the future for sure. (There has been) not so much tactics. If it is one match, if one team scores, then the other has to score as soon as possible. If it is two-legged system, then there is still time to win the next match. More exciting matches, for sure, but, of course, we also have to think about the fact that we have less matches and broadcasters (can) say ,‘You don’t have as many matches as before, this is different’ so we will have to discuss when this crazy situation ends.”
