UEFA chief Cheferin told ZDF on Saturday that the whole process should not be left to FIFA alone.
“FIFA’s explanation was that they wanted to use it for those who needed it urgently. We should agree that the FIFA administration can then decide who gets how much money. I think, and not just me, it’s a little weird, “Cheferin said.
“It needs strict regulation, and you can’t just leave it in the hands of the FIFA administration to find out who needs the most help. It’s too simplistic.”
This is not the first time that Slovenian lawyer and football functionary Čeferin has a different opinion than FIFA President Gianni Infantino.
Meanwhile, FIFA is working with six confederations on scenarios in which the season is extended beyond the usual June 30 deadline, which would affect players’ contracts and transfers.
