BOLA – FIFA confirms anti-competitive regulations (FIFA)



BOLA - FIFA confirms anti-competitive regulations (FIFA)

A relatively unknown name in European football, 26-year-old Spanish striker Alex Berenguer is at the center of a FIFA decision that could shake the transfer market.

In a statement to Osasuna, the club in which Berenguer was formed showed that the world football regulator was right in a legal battle against Turin, in which the Pamplona club is demanding € 1.5 million in connection with clause, related to the sale of a football club. Athletic Bilbao’s player is, after all, an anti-competitive clause.

Last summer, Turin earned 12 million euros in connection with the transfer of Alex Berenguer to Athletic Bilbao. From this amount, the Turin club will now have to deduct € 1.5 million to pay Osasuna over 45 days. According to Italian press reports, Turin will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAD), arguing that these articles are null and void. For its part, FIFA objects to the agreement signed by the club in 2017. At the time, Turin agreed to pay € 5 million for Berenguer’s sports rights, and the transfer included an anti-competitive clause, accepted by both parties, which: in the eyes of the organization headed by Gianni Infantino, makes this value legitimate.

João Mario and Guilherme Ramos cases
Anti-competitive clauses were also the subject of discussion in Portugal this summer. The most notorious case came with João Mario, hired by Inter in 2016, when Sporting demanded a payment of € 30 million in case of a transfer to Portugal. As a result, the midfielder signed a contract with Benfica, but this time as a free player.

Statements by coach Ricardo Sousa after the League Cup match against Porto Mafra (2:2)

About the game: “As I said before the game, we did not come here to put the bus in front of the goal and expect miracles. We tried to be a team with principles. We have them only because my team has the quality so that we have them. We tried to share the game with Porto on an equal footing. We managed to go into the break with a two-goal lead, a comfortable lead.”

The second part: “Unfortunately Porto managed to get 2-1 in the first three minutes and we knew we were going to suffer a bit from now on. Porto have a lot of solutions and a lot of quality. They created a lot of difficulties for us.”

Draw: “They managed to make it 2-2 and we defended as best we could. As a result, I remove the attitude towards this game, it praises what they showed and what they wanted. There are boys here who deserve a lot, and today they showed that they have the quality for so much more.”

surprise: “In the end, we were surprised, and a sign of this was the score 0-2 at half-time. There were two of them, and we had one more situation to score. In the first half, Porto only seemed to get one shot on goal. “We had a good first half, but we played at home against the national champions. We are a second league team and I think Porto have six players in the World Cup. We have six injuries. Maybe the six we have.” Porto “is not as necessary at the World Cup as those that we have injuries.”

Statements by Sergio Conceição, coach of FC Porto, after a 2-2 draw with Mafra in the first round of the League Cup group stage.

Criticism of Ricardo Souza, Mafra’s coach, and arbitration: “This is Portuguese football. I get sent off in Mafra for knocking the ball out of bounds. Today, the opponent’s coach did not honor his last name. He did not honor father and son. He ran into Wendell and nothing happened. The loss of time is constant, from the very beginning of the game. Only give the yellow card to the goalkeeper in the second half. I prefer not to give the yellow card … But that’s not why we lost. We can’t give the opponent 45 minutes. The referee must give 12, 14, 16 minutes. We had the conditions to change the result, but this did not happen.

Game analysis: “I told the players that we can’t give the opponent 45 minutes. We lacked aggression, aggression with the ball. We were not very aggressive. two goals. In the second half, you don’t know, I don’t know if Mafra ever reached our goal. We scored two goals and could have scored more. In the second half we were the same team as always. By applying pressure, they scored two goals. We have drawn, we need to fix two games. Playing at home, we get the support of the public. I take this opportunity to thank the fans who came here at this inhospitable time.”

On Ricardo Sousa’s statements in the flash interview: “We can come here ‘bitaitar’ and say a reality that doesn’t exist, trying to convey an image of something that didn’t exist.”

World Cup players and injuries: “We can imagine all possible and imaginary contexts. We have no reason to do what we have done. We depend on ourselves. We didn’t do much today, especially in the first half. .”
