It is a wise decision, since UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin has given his all to serve, to not seek reelection in 2027 and instead prioritize his family. European Union After obtaining his UEFA coaching license, Robin Van Persie of Manchester United may hire the former striker as a forward coach.
