Infantino lands in Tirana and promises support, Rama bites the Duke badly

Infantino lands in Tirana and promises support, Rama bites the Duke badly

The President of FIFA, Xhani Infantino, was yesterday on an official visit to Albania, where he met the head of the AFL, Armand Duka, as well as Prime Minister Edi Rama. In fact, his visit comes for the inauguration of the AFF headquarters, which is modern and for which FIFA itself has invested a lot. In addition to the jokes of Prime Minister Rama, who often did not hesitate to sting Duka as a PD voter, the Prime Minister emphasized that investments in sports would increase, but for this he asked for FIFA's help. Rama promises, but also stings Duke Prime Minister Rama told Infantino that support for sports will not be lacking. "Dear Xhani, I am speaking with the second language in Albania, which is Italian, to avoid mistakes in translation. Albanian is not official in Switzerland, but it is the first international language spoken by Albanians who live and play football in Switzerland. I should not blaspheme, but you are the second most important representative of a religion that is football. The government that the president and many other presidents voted for has done nothing for football, our government has done it," he emphasized. Rama promised that the government he leads will invest even more in the construction of football fields. "We have built stadiums, but we need to build more football fields. I hope you bring the money you expected for the soccer fields. You put your millions, we put hundreds of thousands of ours. And then the president decides the passion. We have to do a lot of pitches in all the cities. Parents and children are in need", the prime minister further underlined. At the end of his speech, Rama again stung the president of the ALF, Duka. "I have a gift, it's not a sword. Swords enter the arsenal of those who vote these here. I have the brushes. This is for the president, a book of mine, with my art. This is Albanian wine and the bottles were designed by me", concluded Rama. Infantino: We will sevenfold investments for Albanian football The head of FIFA, Infantino himself, thought to "calm down" the situation, promising even bigger investments in the future. "It is a great emotion to be here with you, the rain brings blessings so we are glad that it is raining. This is a day of celebration, a day where we inaugurate the "House of Football". From the time when the AFL is a member of FIFA, UEFA, we all said that it was time to work together to build this House that is for everyone. This project will bring more project and passion to young people, projects Albania into a new era. Football in Albania has a big change, I came 20 years ago and we started thinking about what we were going to do. Albania is designed towards the future and the stadium is a symbol, the stadium where the final took place, but also other stadiums in cooperation with the prime minister shows how much this country loves football. I am proud to be here today, all the eyes of the world are here in Tirana. Today it is the capital of the world, everyone will see it. Albania has made great progress in infrastructure, more can be done, we will also invest in the fields of other cities. "FIFA has multiplied the investments, but we will increase them sevenfold", he underlined.
