UEFA to establish ‘Football Council’

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) issued a decision to establish a “Football Council” that includes twenty personalities, with the aim of formulating proposals for the development of the game.

UEFA said in a statement the French Zinedine Zidane, the Portuguese Jose Mourinho, and the Italian Carlo Ancelotti, will be amongst the personalities joining the council.

UEFA added that the council would have to propose ideas for developing laws or regulating football, which could then be turned into “draft laws”.

Croatian Zvonimir Boban, head of football at UEFA, is leading the new council. The former AC Milan player is assisted by Italian UEFA referee boss Roberto Rosetti.

Ronald Koeman is part of a new UEFA football council, Fabio Capello, Gareth Southgate, Jürgen Klinsmann, Luis Figo and Michael Laudrup are some of the other big names who will be part of the new body.

The UEFA Football Council structure was approved by the UEFA Executive Committee which met in the Portuguese city of Lisbon, and the first UEFA Football Council meeting will be held in Nyon on April 24, around the Youth League final.
