UEFA’s plan with the leagues, the Champions League and the contracts

first_imgContracts: One of the problems with ending this season in August or even at the dates of the next, that is, in September, is that the duration of the contracts of the players and coaches should be extended beyond June 30, which that it is even more conflictive in the case of transfers. While FIFA is willing to adapt the rules to take account of this circumstance, the World Players Union (FIFpro) warns that if this is the case, it should be universal and reach all players, not just those that clubs want to retain. .Transfers: Another measure that would extend the season beyond June would be to extend the next transfer window, which would run from June to January, when the winter window should begin. With this measure, it would be easier to end the campaigns with a certain normality and to ease the transfer market at a time when nobody knows when the championships will be able to restart. This matter has also been agreed between FIFA and UEFA.Selections: The dates of the FIFA calendar for teams are affected by the collapse of the calendar. The Euro Cup has been postponed to next summer, but the June international friendlies have not yet been suspended. They will be shortly, among others the one scheduled for June 5 between Spain and Portugal in Madrid. The teams will give up their dates so that they can finish the European leagues and competitions, and if it is still necessary to restart with club football after the summer, the League of Nations will also undergo a modification, which should start on September 3 . Calendar: UEFA manages three possible dates to restart the Championships: mid-May, June and September. The closest one seems unlikely due to the uneven advance of the coronavirus in Europe, and the most distant one would mean having to readjust next season, probably with cuts in the number of teams in each league, in Cup competitions and the change in formats in European competitions. June is the key month, in which Ceferin is confident that he can play again, even if behind closed doors, to finish the domestic leagues. In Spain and Italy, where the virus attacked earlier, it is hoped that it can be restarted sooner. France, Germany and England pose more problems.Champions: UEFA competition secretary Giorgio Marchetti works as the best and fastest solution to the ‘final four’. The idea is to play the second leg matches that are pending in the round of 16 (City-Real Madrid, Bayer-Chelsea, Barça-Naples and Juve-Lyon) and from there play the quarterfinals to a single match and by pure draw to, to Then, play the two semifinals and the final in Istanbul the last weekend of June. If the pandemic reaches Turkey with force as it has in southern Europe, a change of venue would not be ruled out for reasons of greater force. The same plan is contemplated for the Europa League, but here the problem is that to finish the Champions League there are 17 games remaining and to finish the Europa League there are 27 missing. There is a problem with dates.last_img read more
