Fifa set­ting the wrong prece­dent

Kick Off - - LETTERS -

Bafana Bafana have been or­dered by Fifa to re­play their World Cup qual­i­fier against Sene­gal. This would never have hap­pened un­der Sepp Blat­ter’s ten­ure. I re­mem­ber Ire­land try­ing by all means after Thierry Henry’s hand­ball to have the game re­played, but Blat­ter had none of it. Imag­ine how many na­tions are go­ing protest and de­mand re­plays? Fifa have just a prece­dent which I hope they aren’t go­ing to re­gret. This is what hap­pens when you have peo­ple who never played foot­ball run­ning the game. Gianni In­fantino is a lawyer by pro­fes­sion and he is now start­ing to ap­ply le­gal­i­ties in the game. @Su­per­mario81, via Kick­
