President Gianni Infantino has voiced his opinion of La Liga taking some official matches to the United States
The Spanish FA has decided to take at least an official match to the United States for the next 15 years.
And the news was not welcome by the tournament’s fans in Spain, the players, and other football stars.
And those who oppose the idea might have a bigger partner against it.
On his visit to the United States, FIFA president Gianni Infantino expressed displeasure with the announcement.
“I think I would prefer much more a great MLS game in the U.S. rather than La Liga being in the U.S.,” Infantino reportedly said as quoted by NBC Sports.
He added he is “only” the FIFA president.
And he was not being ironic, FIFA would need to approve the international match for La Liga clubs.
But the proposal needs to have the backup of the Spanish football federation, U.S. Soccer, UEFA, and CONCACAF.
