Laliga takes the Courts with FIFA conflict for the assignment of South American Internationals

New judicial conflict in sight in Spanish football. And they are already ... in this case, those who take the initiative, under Laliga, are the clubs with South American footballers who have been summoned for the pair of selections that starts from Monday. The decision of Conmebol, endorsed by FIFA, to expand two days the international period implies that these players can not dispute the fourth day of Laliga (from September 10 to 12) with their clubs, which has led "unanimously" a Those affected to "initiate precautionary measures before the competent court body in order to protect the rights and interests of the competition and the affected clubs," the employer is reported on Thursday.

This scenario is a consequence of the total football paron that occurred during the first months of the pandemic and that caused several windows of selection parties that all the confederations have been recovering later. UEFA decided to include three matches instead of two in several windows, without expanding the number of days legally fixed, which are ten. Conmebol, however, requested FIFA to extend international periods of September and October until 12 days, appealing to the intercontinental trips of many of its summoned, I pray that the highest global soccer body decided to support.

With that remarkable calendar, the South American teams will play their third and last match of this paron at dawn (Spanish time) on Thursday 9 to Friday 10, while the Laliga Day starts that same Friday with a Levante-Ray. In other words, those who play that international party will not be able to do it on the weekend with their clubs, at least those who have to play on Friday and Saturday. Real Madrid, as this newspaper reported, showed his discomfort for this situation. The boot of the phase of groups of the Champions the following week causes the Spanish competition to lack margin of maneuver to delay those parties and thus adapt to the modification approved by FIFA.

Affected Clubs (13 first and second, with 25 players in total) are therefore understood that this situation "affects the calendar in a flagrant form and the integrity of the Laliga competition", so they have also agreed to "communicate to their Players convened by Conmebol Selections The impossibility of displacement with their respective selections, pending that the current situation and problems be clarified, "now judicialized and waiting for a rapid resolution, as the international parion starts this same Monday.

A position that shares the clubs of the A series and the Premier League, who have also announced that they will not give their players. In the case of the English, the mandatory quarantines to which several of the soccer players should be submitted upon return to the United Kingdom also feed their refusal, at the expense of Boris Johnson can authorize an exception for these players.

FIFA, for its part, supports the modification of the calendar that itself approved and has threatened to sanction clubs that do not allow the citation of their South American international. The Regulation of the Maximum World Soccer Agency does not collect what type of sanction the teams that adopt this position could suffer, although FIFA could veto the participation of those players during the five days after the couple, which would affect the one's own journey of Laliga And also to the immediately posterior of Champions. Lawyers consulted by this newspaper, however, do not see that possibility and consider that Laliga and their clubs have those of winning in this conflict, given that FIFA and Conmebol's decision assumes an unacciated alteration of the calendar that was previously agreed .
