the regime in Saudi Arabia has a plan to become a big player in international football. And it must be done by to buy influence. Unfortunately, a number of european clubs to the fals of the wicked mammon.
the Latest example is about the Italian big clubs Juventus and AC Milan, who meet on Wednesday in the Italian Super Cup in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It is yet another blight on international football, where the money goes prior to morality and decency.
has invited both teams to drop the match in protest against the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi of Saudi Arabia's embassy in Istanbul last year.
But the kind of calls he has with the two clubs, who would prefer to play for the sheiks in Saudi Arabia than their own fans in a stadium in Italy. It is in all ways a sad development.
the italians, who find the situation bedrøvelig. This is due, among other things, that female spectators do not have the same access to the stands in the Jeddah as the male. The female spectators may only sit in the so-called familieafsnit.
Italy's deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini is very much cash in his criticism.
- It is sad that the Italian Super Cup to be played in an islamic country, where women can't get on the stadium, unless they are in the company of a man. It is disgusting. I must not see the fight, says Matteo Salvini.
his contract with Bayern Munich has also several times played in Saudi Arabia. it usually happens in the extension of the klubenes annual training camp in neighbouring Qatar.
from 2015. Although Bayern Munich did not need the money, could the club's management still does not close. Two million euros, or almost 15 million dollars was expected in Saudi Arabia's capital, Riyadh, where Bavaria would drop by and play an exhibition match against the local large groups, Al-Hilal.
a lot can be said bad about Saudi Arabia, among other things, that they refuse the jews entry, but it did not the great German club, which is otherwise known as a club with deep jewish roots.
dress the Bayern and other european clubs and football associations to follow Borussia Dortmund's example. The club has a policy not to play (in countries, which discriminate against and violates the human rights.
If the example should spread to clubs such as Brondby, FC Midtjylland, PSG, PSV, Club Brugge, KAS Eupen, Zenit St Petersburg, Spartak Moscow, Locomotive Moscow and FC Rostov, the pressure coming from their fans.
All of the mentioned clubs have been, or shall at the training camp in Qatar or The United Arab Emirates. Countries which in the same way as Saudi Arabia is suppressing human rights in a number of areas.
fans are a shining example that it is useless to protest. As unique in scandinavia because the førerhold announced that the tour went to The United Arab Emirates, congenital massive criticism from fans, who felt that the club should find a place where the conditions were different. And how to get it in the future.
Brøndbys fans have also protested, but as yet without success. Previously fangrupperinger in the Norwegian Rosenborg and the Swedish Malmo FF successfully got their clubs to choose sheikregimerne from. It is beneficial to speak from.
