Gianni Infantino's moral compass ⋆ An Old International

Gianni Infantino’s moral compass

There is a new president of FIFA and it is the same as the old: Gianni Infantino. The vote was more or less a proclamation of a new king or emperor, less a democratic process. Though, whoever thinks FIFA acts democratically may think twice.

Afterwards, the president gave insights into his motivation to stand for election for the first time in 2016. There is only one reasonable conclusion to be drawn: Infantino has no conscience, no moral compass or standards. Worse, there are enough people on this planet and within football who think this is something normal and voted for him.

He stated that the suffering of the country (i.e.Rwanda) has inspired him in his first run for FIFA president in 2016. What he referred to is the genocide of 1994 during which an estimated 800000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed by Hutu militiae.

There are no more words needed.
