FIFA president Gianni Infantino has said that no match is worth risking a life for so football won’t resume until everything surrounding Coronavirus are 100% safe
“Our first priority, our principle, the one we will use for our competitions and encourage everyone to follow is that health comes first,” he said in a video message.
“I cannot stress this enough. No match, no competition, no league is worth risking a single human life.”
“It would be more than irresponsible to force competitions to resume if things are not 100% safe,” added Infantino.
“If we have to wait a little longer we must do so. It’s better to wait a little bit longer than to take any risks.”
“We are today in a very strong financial situation,” Infantino said.
“But our reserves are not FIFA’s money. It is football’s money. So when football is in need, we must think what we can do to help… It is our responsibility and our duty.”
