The Swiss Gianni Infantino was reelected this Thursday like president of the FIFA until 2027, like only candidate, during the 73 Congress that the organisation celebrates in Kigali (Rwanda). During his intervention, in which it wanted to value his work during the previous period, the maximum mandator of the organism also did reference to the 'Case Negreira'.

"The big clubs do a lot by the football and no only by his city and his country. It concerns us what is happening. It goes to analyse all, for example in Spain. It is necessary to see what happened and raisin and see as it solves . In Italy, also there are problems. We have to give between all a positive impulse by himself is possible to recess the tension that exists, but it is necessary to find solutions", declared the Swiss.

The FIFA will expect that it follow the development

Referring also to the Spanish football, the lawyer spoke on Vinícius and commented that it sends "all the solidarity for Vinicius and the players that are distinguished". "Each organiser is responsible of what happen in his competitions, but put to disposal of the footballers a system to cut the insults in social networks. With regard to what happens in the field, the referees have the obligation if there are racist insults", added Infantino.

On a possible sportive sanction of part of the FIFA to the FC Barcelona by the corresponding payments to consultancys of the ex referee Enriquez Negreira finds for now like a very far possibility. Right now it is not contemplated by the maximum organism of the world-wide football, that although it recognises the situation, will expect by the performance of the local sportive authorities.

Attention from the two entes more important

By his part, the regulation of the UEFA reserves the right to expel or no to a team that put in doubt the competition. The case would arrive to the TAS surely in this circumstance, in which it would be the most direct way for any possible sanction to the Barcelona club. Everything equally will split of the official investigation that will carry out the Fiscalía, although the charges probably already have prescribed.
