Sepp Blatter’s comments make you wonder why the FIFA president is so concerned about what one footballer wants rather than the organisation as a whole. Many are speculating that there is a hidden agenda or agreement between the famous footballer and the FIFA president. If so, what would be the drive behind the agreement? A future contract? Both sides will gain for as long as both sides are happy, but the chance of Ronaldo threatening to quit and lose the lifestyle he is accustomed to isn’t very likely.
The organisation needs to have a certain set of rules, not only to keep the peace, but also to define a set of limits and equality. Otherwise, the best football team would translate into the one that has the most money. Not that this isn’t so now, only that this division would become considerably more defined. Also how much can even the richest clubs afford to pay out to their players before they can no longer afford to keep going?
The comments made by Sepp Blatter were not only ridiculous but dangerous as well. His remarks could signal a swift end to his career. Instead of focusing on pampering favourites, the league needs someone who will promote a brother-ship between the teams. In the end, without this one important component the entire league will falter.
