The president of the German Federation announces that he does not want to re-elect Gianni Infantino as head of FIFA

Bernd Neuendorf (President of the German Federation): “As far as FIFA is concerned, we have made this decision (of not wanting to re-elect Gianni Infantino on March 16, 2023). It hasn’t been easy, that’s for sure, but it’s our decision, because we think we have to give a signal. Everyone knows that Gianni Infantino already has many confederations on his side which makes his re-election very likely. Nevertheless, I still think that after his letter two weeks ago, reading that human rights should no longer play a role, and that we should focus on football, is something that irritated us and disturbed. We felt we had to signal that we will not be proposing him for re-election. ยป
