Wed 05 May 2021 | 11:18

FIFA President, Gianni Infantino claims that he intends to "avoid conflict" and tries to "build a different future" following the Super League controversy.

The football institutions are considering the actions and penalties for the teams who tried to split by creating the Super League – including

Inter

,

Juventus

, and

Milan

.

“We must avoid talking about war when it comes to football,”

Infantino announced to

L’Equipe

“Especially at a time like this when the whole world is dealing with an unprecedented pandemic."

However, the FIFA president doesn’t want to have conflict and wishes to fix the situation through "

dialogue

".

“It’s the task of the national institutions, then of UEFA and then of FIFA, to take the appropriate decisions."

He added.

“Even in the most delicate situations, I’m for dialogue and not for conflicts. A leader has the duty to ask himself why all this has come about and, starting from this question, build a different future by talking and listening to everyone, especially the fans, who are the heart of football.

“Certain sanctions could have important consequences and then we should take responsibility for them.

“It’s to be understood what measures are being talked about. I hear that clubs must be punished, but this could also mean punishing the players, coaches, and fans of the clubs involved, who have nothing to do with the Super League project."
