FIFA president Gianni Infantino to give verdict on Super League
FIFA president Gianni Infantino is expected to deliver his verdict on the European Super League today after the widely condemned breakaway competition triggered threats of legal action and punitive measures.
European body UEFA will look to support from the world football chief at its congress in Switzerland as it attempts to quash an initiative that threatens its prized Champions League and the health of domestic competitions such as England’s Premier League.
Twelve powerful clubs — six from England, and three each from Spain and Italy — have signed up for the Super League, which offers guaranteed spots for its founding members and billions of dollars in payments. Currently, clubs have to qualify for the Champions League each year through their national competitions, and face a lengthy group phase before reaching the high-profile latter stages.
STILL IN SPORTS; The Nigeria Football Federation – NFF has revealed that they will give the Super Falcons coach, Randy Waldrum, the total support in a bid to build a formidable squad that will compete for global laurels.
NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, stated this at a brief meeting with Waldrum in Abuja. They expressed delight with the performance of the Super Falcons at the Turkish Women’s Tournament, where the team won all their matches against teams such as Uzbekistan, Equatorial Guinea, and CSKA Moscow.
