As far as Premier League is concerned, he said: “In my view, and this (the calendar) is something on which UEFA president Michel Platini agrees, domestic championships are too long because there are too many teams and too many matches.
“Teams in leagues with 20 clubs play 38 games, on top of which they also have national cup competitions and league cups, etc.
“This also creates a conflict of interest between national teams and clubs, some of whom complain that their players come back tired or injured.
“That’s not the fault of the international calendar, however, and it’s a subject that ought to be discussed.”
Many complaints have been received in respect to his decisions since he assumed office in 1998, and this one won’t be an exception either. Because, apart from this first one, he tends to do some other adjustments to the game, before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
He also said: “It’s objective is to assess tournaments and the way in which the game is organized.
“Let me give you a few examples. At the moment three points are awarded for a win and one for a draw, which is something we can discuss and decide whether it’a a goothing or not.
“Is extra-time the only option we have when a game ends in a draw? And if we stick with extra-time, how should we end games?
“Is it worth taking another look at the golden goal? Some people like it, some don’t.”
There are too many questions here, and the only man who can give us some answers is Sepp Blatter. Maybe it will arouse controversies, seems like it, we’ll wait and see!
