Malizia commented that the interference of the state led FIFA to make a decision and reminded the normalizing commission that the Sports Disciplinary, Ethics and Appeals Court ordered INDES to impose.
“Unfortunately recently actions taken by third parties have forced FIFA to take action. One of those actions was the installation of a normalizing commission by a third party,” he mentioned.
Leal said that they are open to dialogue with the government as they have done before, always seeking the benefit of soccer.
“We sit down many times with the government and we remain open to always sitting down watching over football,” he concluded.
