Infantino and his project: “Our mission is to globalize football”

first_imgFIFA President Gianni Infantino celebrated his first Wednesday four years in office and announced his project for “a truly global football” with eleven key objectives, after an initial period of “much-needed governance reforms that have restored the image” of the organization.The document “Vision 2020-23 for a truly global football sets up a plan for modernize the world of football and make it increasingly inclusive and mark the way to the day when we have at least 50 teams and as many clubs from all continents at the highest competitive level, “said Infantino.According to FIFA in a statement, the eleven basic objectives for this are “Modernize the football regulatory framework, increase income in a sustainable way to continue reinvesting in football, increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization, guarantee the success of our most emblematic competitions and globalize our competitions.”They add “increasing competitiveness on a global scale, maximizing our influence on the global development of football, accelerating the growth of women’s football, taking advantage of technology in football; safeguarding positive values ​​in football and influencing society thanks to the power of football. ““Each of these objectives rests on four pillars that range from organizing sustainable tournaments to generating more opportunities for our members to host FIFA tournaments, to create unique experiences for fans and global audiences, and to fight against racism and other forms of discrimination “, he added. Infantino recalled that the government reforms undertaken since his arrival have made FIFA “restored its image as a reliable institution that works in favor of football” and “defended that” FIFA is in a very solid position that allows it to set objectives clear and specific, to give more concrete results “.For Infantino, the important thing now is to make football, “the most popular sport in the world, practiced and revered by billions of people in every corner of the planet,” be “truly global.”“It is true that football is played throughout the world, from the streets of Kinsasa to the beaches of New Caledonia, and I feel fortunate to have been able to verify it in person, since I have visited more than one hundred countries over the past four years.

Toni Villa: “All together to overcome this disease”

first_imgAnother of the entertainments that he likes the most is the video console, but since being glued all day to a screen is not the best, cleaning the house has also become a resource not only for Murcia, but for many. Another way to be informed and in contact are the WhatsApp groups and logically the first team of Real Valladolid has theirs: “When training stopped, they gave us a plan to be able to exercise on the street, but with the government’s decision to declare a state of alarm, the possibility of going out becomes unfeasible, like any other citizen, so we do it in home as we can. I have a small flat and I do stationary bikes, weights, exercises … “It is what they have to do, adapt and survive in the best possible way, and Toni and his colleagues are doing it like the rest of the population.In everyday life we ​​all belong to different groups and we identify with some tastes and in the case of soccer with some colors. At a time when the team is all formed in the face of adversity, Toni is clear that together we will succeed: “They are like the Club. They are fighters and have always grown in the face of adversity. There are no colors or borders here, the important thing is that we all go to one to overcome this disease and that everything goes as well as possible. “ With the physical closeness canceled, permanent contact with those people we love is essential these days. Toni has her family in a town in Murcia, Lorquí, and videoconferences or phone calls help a lot: “Being close even when we are far away, that is the most important thing.” They are complicated moments for all citizens and of course for the Real Valladolid footballers. These days we saw Captain Javi Moyano sending the message of ‘Stay at home’ which is the ‘leiv motiv’ that should move us all; In these last hours and thanks to the communication service of the private club we have known the feelings of Toni Villa, from his home in Arroyo de la encomienda in Valladolid.At the end of last week the Blanquvioleta club sent its players home and suspended all face-to-face activities and prepared a ‘home’ training plan to try as much as possible to keep the players in shape. Toni, although he is far from his family in Murcia, has the support of his girlfriend Natalia. The youth squad sent that same message of encouragement and that staying home is the best way to beat and protect those we love most: “It is tough but you have to do it in the best possible way because it is something that we all have to do for the common good. We all know what happened in China and what is happening in Italy or Spain, and we all have family members and we don’t want anything bad to happen to them, so we have to sacrifice ourselves without leaving home. “last_img read more

Bartomeu: “Messi told me that this reduction had to be made”

first_imgJosep María Bartomeu, president of Barcelona, ​​spoke about the situation of the Catalan club. “In round figures, a month is about 14 million of the net salary of the first team and the rest of the teams are two million because it is only on the base salary and not on the variables,” reveals Sports world. Meanwhile in Sport He also talks about the execution plan: “We would be irresponsible administrators if we had not implemented this reduction.”Application of the ERTE. We would be irresponsible administrators if we had not launched this discount. The economic situation is difficult and all measures had to be put in place to protect the club. Messi. He told me that this reduction had to be made.ERTE procedure. From the first moment and I wanted it to be something agreed and not imposed although I could do it by law but we wanted to reach an agreement because it is the best for Barça and they demonstrate their commitment. It has been achieved as I wanted and not imposed. We preferred to wait to discuss it with them and that it was not imposed at all. There has been a predisposition from the first day, from minute one.How are the figures? In round figures, a month is about 14 million of the net salary of the first team and the rest of the teams is two million because it is only on the base salary and not on the variables. In total, 16 million discounts per month. If the Alert Status lasts one month, it will be a reduction of 5.75% of the annual salary. If it lasts 45 days, it will be 8.6% and if it lasts two months, which we believe not, 11.5%. It is a flexible agreement conditioned on the number of days.Figures. Obviously it will not be possible to reach 1,050 million income, but until February we were on a record line well above those expected. This has stopped and we cannot enter many games as I have said before. There are those who say that we must now take these measures because the economic situation of the club is very bad and that is not true. The drop in income affects all clubs and all companies except pharmacies and those that can still operate. And we have examples in football, with Bayern and Juventus or Lyon making very important reductions. It is not a desperate issue but they try to adapt to the new conditions. Saving. On this subject we do not know yet. We are negotiating with the Works Council and there are many people who must go to ERTE. The club had already anticipated that many employees would complement a very important part to reach 100%. With the players we have shared this add-on with an agreement. And for this reason, soccer players are reduced by 70% and 2%, which they have added to compensate for the unemployment of these employees together with the club.Elections. This crisis does not make us rethink the electoral calendar, we will do it when it is time, at the end of the mandate.Cut in salary of leaders: We have spoken by videoconference, by whatsapp, calls. Sometimes everyone, sometimes one by one. The first day, the 20th, we all spoke together and they all said ahead. The four captains said so. The proposal we made to them that day, Friday, March 20, is the same, with the difference that they now add two percent to half compensate the employees with the club.Player complaints. Yes, I have been told this before, but I cannot control who is speaking. I do not know who they are. In the end I tell them that we are the four (the captains), the CEO and myself. And think that there are people from all over the world who speak, but I can say that neither the players nor I have spoken, nor Grascar Grau. On the contrary, if someone asked me, I would say calmly, that there would be no ERTE with the players. And there has not been nor will there be with the squad. There has been a private agreement between the club and the first team. Let the members know that there are many measures to mitigate this reduction in income. But none could be launched without having the agreement without the professional footballers because they are the base.last_img read more

End of contracts creates trouble for stars and clubs

first_imgUEFA’s decision to bring football into the summer and thus overcome the barrier of June 30 may pose an insurmountable legal problem in the world of football. Many contracts conclude that day and it will take an almost exhaustive review of each of them to allow them to be skipped. FIFA has already said it will give the relevant authorizations through moratoriums. But it won’t be easy.According to legal experts, footballers who end their relationship or even those who have already signed for other clubs could refuse to play beyond June 30. That date is historically used to limit contracts. The connections end and start from the 30th. “FIFA is not part of the contract, does not pay the salary and is not responsible if something happens. It is an employer-employee relationship,” says the prestigious sports lawyer Gerrit Pieter Poiesz at Telegraaf .According to Ko Andriessen, director of the Dutch players’ union ProProf, it is likely that under labor law it is not possible to force footballers to play. “There should be a deal. It often happens when a player sells from season to season. It is not until July that he trains with his new club, but being under contract with his old club, he can and should do so until June 30. “ That is, according to the labor law of each country, those who must reach an agreement are the player and the club, it is not worth an imposition by anyone. There are many important footballers whose contract expires in June and who would find themselves in this situation: Willian (Chelsea), Mertens (Naples), Meunier (PSG), Cavani (PSG), Vertonghen (Tottenham), Silva (City), Pedro (Chelsea), Alley (Naples), Giroud (Chelsea) …The problem is compounded when a third club is involved. An obvious and public example is that of Ziyech. The Moroccan winger has already been transferred from Ajax to Chelsea for 40 million and since July 1 belongs to the English team, not the Dutch. That he can play with Ajax beyond that date is difficult to imagine. Neither Chelsea nor the player is going to risk serious injury, for example. This occurs with all footballers already signed and transferred.“Chelsea could cede Ajax to Ziyech only during the summer time. Being creative is not prohibited in contracts, but only possible if clubs and players agree. FIFA can never impose that binding, “recalls Ko Andriessen. “In this case, it would mean that the transferred players don’t leave a little earlier, but rather stay a little longer.” It is a solution, although remote.Therefore, the issue goes beyond the intentions of FIFA and FIFPro, the soccer union. The highest body, which smelled what was going to happen, was quick to point out that it would grant permits to those clubs and players who ask for it. FIFPro also understands that if a footballer has been in a club all season, he must finish it in the same season.. The logic is that; the laws, others.last_img read more

Nagelsmann: “I want to get away from the selfishness of soccer”

first_imgThe Leipzig club also promotes a solidarity campaign under the hashtag #WirAlle. “Among other things, we help social institutions and that’s where I make my contribution,” said Nagelsmann.On the other hand, he criticized the transfer of footballers in the summer to be prohibited. “We need money to flow in football and some economic efficiency,” he said. “There is a market and there are contracts. This will not change due to the coronavirus,” he emphasized.However, a possible postponement of the transfer period was identified as adequate. “Perhaps a little shorter or later in the year,” said Nagelsmann, thinking of a Bundesliga with nine days pending. The coach of the RB Leipzig, Julian Nagelsmann, bet this Sunday to move away “from the selfish thought of football” and stressed that in Germany there are sectors of employment “that the crisis affects much more deeply” than football, alluding to the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.“I have many friends who are autonomous and who are much more deeply affected by the crisis. I want to get away from the selfish thought of football,” said Nagelsmann in an interview published by the newspaper ‘Bild’.“I try to donate to different places. For example, I support a Florian Neuhaus project. We come from the same region,” said the RB Leipzig coach, referring to the Borussia player Mönchengladbach.last_img read more
