Infantino: “It is not worth endangering human life for any party or league”
The FIFA announced this Thursday the creation of an emergency fund to combat the crisis generated in the world of football, as reported through an official statement the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).Gianni Infantino, president of the football organization, issued a message to all member federations to explain the lines of action that FIFA will take to alleviate the economic problems caused by the coronavirus.“The first thing is health, it is not worth endangering human life for any game, no competition, or any league, let’s listen to the health authorities”, emphasized Infantino, in an argument that, according to the RFEF, coincides with the version that its president maintains Luis Rubiales. “We are working on an emergency fund. We have a very solid financial situation, but our reserves are not from FIFA, it is football money and our duty is to help. We are working on the most appropriate response. We will do it with responsibility and transparency “, he guaranteed Infantino.Also, FIFA also announced that it will advance a series of payments corresponding to the second half of 2020 to try to combat the financial problems caused by the pandemic, a measure that the RFEF has already adopted to provide certainty to non-professional football.“We have to protect the future of the national teams. We are studying the contracts of the players and the new transfer markets to show flexibility and common sense. We have to go out together and better than we were before. In a strategic and united way” ended Infantino.
