The president of UEFA, Aleksander Ceferin, apologized on Thursday for the technical problem that occurred last Monday, and that forced to repeat in its entirety the draw for the knockout stages of the Champions League, for offering an image of ” being transparent “. As indicated by UEFA once the draw was held, it had to be carried out again due to “a technical problem with the software” that caused that after the ball came out of Atlético de Madrid, Liverpool was introduced into the pot, with which the rojiblancos could not cross together because they had been in Group B, Also, once Villarreal’s name came out, the ball was taken from United, which should not have been because both groups shared.” Of course we regret that this error occurred. We wanted to be transparent and that’s why we made the draw again,” Aleksander Ceferin told a news conference after a meeting of the Executive Committee of the UEFA.De anyway, the Slovenian stressed that it was “too early to talk about consequences” and made it clear that it was “a mistake of UEFA”. “We should rely less on technology. We will inform the public soon about new measures,” he said.
