Prague criticizes Infantino about to appoint Van Basten
KNVB chairman Michael van Praag has fierce criticism on the way in which the FIFA Marco van Basten has incorporated.
“It is against all agreements,” says Prague on Radio 1. Van Basten quit his job as assistant coach at Orange to get to the wereldvoetbalbond to get started as head of a team that deals with rules and innovation in the football.
“I was on August 24, called by FIFA president Gianni Infantino”, tells Of Prague. “He indicated that FIFA was interested in Marco van Basten.”
“I was on the election campaign for the presidency of UEFA, and gave Infantino the phone number of the then director of professional football Bert van Oostveen. When I Bert then opbelde, it turned out that the FIFA already with Marco had spoken. It’s just not.”
“I’m happy for Marco that he that fantastic a job. He is not gone because he’s at the KNVB’t to his liking. Everyone calls out: ‘you See, he walks away with the KNVB’. But he is gone because he a great job could get in the FIFA.”
Prague was last year in the race to be FIFA president, but the crowd later in his battle against the then president Sepp Blatter behind Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein. Who lost the election of Blatter, but shortly afterwards joined by scandals surrounded the Swiss yet. He was succeeded by his countryman Gianni Infantino.
Of Prague, despite the way in which Van Basten was annexed by the FIFA confidence in Infantino. “I think that FIFA is going to work out under the guidance of Infantino. But this was wrong of him.”
