On Tuesday evening, FIFA presented some recommendations and guidelines for dealing with the crisis situation. The package of the World Association includes solutions for the player contracts expiring in summer and the transfer market.

The ongoing corona pandemic is turning football upside down. FIFA wants to put some order into the chaos and presented a package of ideas and solutions on Tuesday. FIFA's guidelines and recommendations primarily relate to contracts and the upcoming transfer window.

The contracts expiring in the summer are to be extended until the official end of the seasons.

The future of Thiago should be as good as cleared Open fire on Säbener Straße: After Hansi Flick's future has been cleared (new contract until 2023), it is time to tackle the personnel future of the squad! But the Corona crisis is slowing these plans. With FC Bayern you keep your feet still these days.

The statement from FIFA : " Expiring player contracts usually end at the end of the season (ie on the date on which the season ends). Since the game has ceased in most countries, the current season does not end as originally assumed. For this reason Contracts should therefore be extended until the effective end of the season, and this arrangement should correspond to the original intention of the parties when the contract is concluded, while maintaining sporting integrity and stability A similar arrangement applies to contracts that should begin at the beginning of the new season. These contracts will only come into effect when the new season begins.

The world association is of course also aware of the precarious economic situation of the clubs. FIFA may, however, not propose any salary cuts - the decision remains in the hands of active and active in the clubs.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge expects the corona crisis to affect the transfer market. “But every crisis also includes an opportunity. Transfer fees and salaries for players have been developing on an unhealthy scale for a long time.

FIFA's statement: " COVID-19 also has a major impact on the earnings situation of the clubs, especially since games can no longer be played. Football, like other sectors of the economy, must find fair, balanced and targeted solutions in order to get as many jobs as possible and to achieve a fair and balanced balance between the interests of the players and the clubs.

FIFA therefore strongly advises clubs and players to agree on common solutions for the period in which the game is suspended.

Although primarily the parties responsible at national level need to find appropriate solutions, FIFA recommends that all circumstances be objectively examined, including possible official measures to support clubs and players, a possible postponement or a possible reduction in salary payments and, if necessary existing insurance coverage.

If the parties cannot agree and call FIFA on the matter, the following criteria are taken into account:

FIFA hopes that this will find fair and balanced solutions for both sides. "

FIFA also presented a shift in the transfer window.

FIFA's statement on this: " The applicable regulations must also apply to the transfer window be adapted to the new factual circumstances. FIFA therefore offers a hand for flexible solutions so that the relevant transfer window can be moved between the end of the old season and the beginning of the new season.

At the same time, FIFA endeavors to ensure overall coordination as far as possible and takes account of the protection of the regularity, integrity and smooth operation of competitions so that the sporting results of competitions are not unfairly influenced. "

FIFA President Gianni Infantino supported the measures following statement: " COVID-19 has completely changed the circumstances of football for this season. FIFA has therefore worked with all stakeholders to come up with some practical ideas and suggestions for these new circumstances. Even if these guidelines and recommendations do not solve all problems, they should at least provide some stability and certainty in football for the near future. This FIFA-led collaboration will hopefully show how football can close the ranks and face difficult times thanks to unity, solidarity and willingness to compromise. But before that happens, everyone must now be clear: health comes first - and only after that does football. "
