Uefa president Aleksander Čeferin has announced that European football's governing body will launch its own OTT platform later this year.

Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin has criticised "a lack of respect" from top European bosses after 10 managers did not attend a meeting to discuss the use of video assistant referees (VAR).

Speaking to European soccer officials on Wednesday ahead of his unopposed re-election, Ceferin recalls a group of elite clubs were considering a split in 2016 before he was voted UEFA president.

Ceferin, 51, was confirmed in office on Thursday by all 55 UEFA member associations' delegates at the 43rd UEFA Ordinary Congress in Rome.

The Slovenian national was elected in September 2016 to complete the four-year term of then-President Michel Platini, who was banned for financial misconduct.

World Cup, held every four years, and a global version of UEFA's Nations League. In addition, it sets the foundations and structure required to ensure, that together with UEFA, we meet the challenges the game faces to support its continued long-term growth.

The other player to miss the cut is rookie Bath wing Joe Cokanasiga, who is continuing his recovery from a knee injury. Chris Ashton will make his first Six Nations start since 2013 when he replaces Jack Nowell who drops to the bench.

"I have a good feeling that we will start talking now that everyone has understood (that) without proper consultation we would not end up anywhere", Ceferin said.

Other key Ceferin targets through 2023 are a European bidder winning the 2030 World Cup hosting rights and updating the financial fair play rules which monitor club finances.

"We will adapt the financial fair play rules to establish a new European balance in which everyone can find their rightful place".

"Are Manchester City and PSG too big to be sanctioned?"

Ceferin excused Liverpool from attending as they were playing a Premier League match at West Ham on Monday, which ended 1-1 at London Stadium. "Any club that violates any regulations will be sanctioned".

He also defended his record since taking over with his most notable achievement being the introduction of term limits for UEFA presidents, to a maximum of three four-year stints. "We will be doing more in this area because there remain weaknesses in our system".
