Why privatization is needed
One of the reasons for the poor financial condition of Slovenian football clubs lies in the fact that they are not privatized, explained Čeferin in an interview with Playboy: “Imagine you are a millionaire who wants to invest in a club. Do you like the idea of investing in a Slovenian club that can compete in the European Cup – this is the cheapest option <...> But at a general meeting where everyone from janitors to economists votes, you get kicked out of the club you spent so much money on. So I see no reason why anyone should invest in Slovenian clubs. People showed interest, but as soon as they found out about the intricacies of the legislation, they immediately said goodbye. ” Čeferin would like the local clubs to become a limited liability company or joint stock company.
