Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was Wednesday named as the new head of the European Club Association (ECA) replacing Andrea Agnelli, one of the key figures in the doomed Super League project.

Juventus chairman Agnelli left the job in the early hours of Monday after news of the breakaway league was revealed.

Despite their vast riches, French champions PSG were not one of the 12 clubs who signed up for the Super League.

"I am honoured and humbled to have been appointed by my fellow ECA Executive Board Members as chairman," said Qatari Al-Khelaifi.
