FIFA President Gianni Infantino: Less popular than the Joker
Er is the hero this game deserves: Gianni Infantino, President of the international football association FIFA. If he was in the next Batman movie, the Joker would be the good guy.
His latest act: At the FIFA Congress in Kigali, Rwanda, where he was just “re-elected” – that so-called unopposed election (I guess that’s how it is in a world where the German Football Association is in opposition is), was that almost everyone present gave a hearty applause – at this FIFA Congress, Infantino related his story to the history of the country he was speaking to.
Infantino and the Rwanda Comparison
He told how he was at the memorial site in Rwanda commemorating the genocide during his first campaign for FIFA President – and then thought he had to keep going despite the allegedly poor starting position. Because he now knew how this country had suffered, because he knew how this country had come back.
At the congress he said: “I couldn’t give up because of that.” And anyone who believes that this Gianni Infantino story is true in every detail probably also believes that the DFB in the FIFA really resists.
