Paris and the City have paid a fine of 20 million euros, we do not want a Super League
FIFA president, Gianni Infantino, who has been constantly attacked by various leaked documents, has decided to open his papers. In short, he went into the counterattack. He spoke of all and of everything mentioned in his name.
First of all, World Power’s «strong man» has denied having spoken to President Trump about the 2026 World Cup. The United States, at least when Donald Trump took over, appeared to be unwilling to claim the top football tournament.
However, we all know that once he was elected, Mr Trump changed his attitude and, with his statements, said his country wanted to take the final phase of the World Cup.
But Mr Infantino is not involved. The president of the International Federation stressed that before the vote he had not spoken to Mr. Trump.
This was done afterwards, as is customary to congratulate him on the United States (together with Canada and Mexico).
Infinity, speaking in Zurich, at the headquarters of FIFA, continued for the World Cup:
«The system for assigning it is the most democratic and transparent that exists in the world. We have rules from the beginning. I had to resist the pressure of those who wanted to return to the past .. «
«I am the president of FIFA. I was executive secretary of UEFA. My goal was to help the clubs. Not to destroy them. I met Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City as with other teams to find a deal. An agreement, but where the final decision belongs to the committees responsible for it and not me. I did not even have the tools to change the cards to the table. And anyway, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City have been fined around 20 million euros in each. Not only that. Of the 30 teams were excluded 2. AC Milan, which has resorted to the CAC and a Russian team has already been re-integrated. So if we talk about favoritism, we’re wrong. The small groups that have been eliminated, this is because they have not paid the debts, and the wages of the players, which are much more serious. «
WORLD COLLECTION CUP:
«An effort should also be made to avoid the creation of the Super League, as well as summer tournaments held in the United States or around the world, because this will lead to the Super League. While in FIFA there will be solidarity and redistribution of money. In March we will see: I always try to reach an agreement, but if it is not possible, then the majority will decide, as is the case in democracy».
QATAR 48 TEAMS?: «The World Cup of 48 teams will be from 2026. However, if it can be done in Qatar, we will predict enlargement. Otherwise nothing»
FIFA INVESTMENTS: «We have quadrupled investment in federations and we have increased turnover and reserves, so all the payments are controlled, so why does not the questioner ask where the old FIFA’s money was? we do not know … «.
FOR THE VAR : «In 10 years we will wonder how it was so stupid to start so late.»
NO CHAMPIONSHIP ABROAD: «FIFA has said not in the Spanish proposal to make some games abroad. And that’s because we do not believe that, in turn, will be happy to host Premier Spain matches. The Super Cup is different, this can be one of the tournaments but one of the least important. «
Then Mr Infantino referred to the reports that concern him directly:
«Find me something illegal in the documents that blame me like FIFA. A regulation has not been violated. I have read very critical articles, but full of inaccuracies, and this is inappropriate. I am the son of Italian immigrants who changed FIFA, maybe someone who did not like it. … We forget that FIFA was clinically dead, and now it’s fine and there is transparency. Not to mention the work we are doing on player transfers: there, when you look at it, something always appears … «
