Football after the coronavirus will be completely different, more social and supportive, linked to territorial realities, but at the same time more global, less arrogant and more welcoming, “Infantino wrote in a letter published by the Italian media.“The only thing that will not change will be joy for a goal, hugging to share a joy. We will be better, more human, more attentive to the true values. Italy will come out of this, because in the hardest moments it knows how to give its best. I am at your side, dear friends, “he added.The president of FIFA, born in Switzerland but with Italian parents, sent this letter dedicated to Italy to show his closeness to this country in the emergency due to the coronavirus, which has already caused more than 13,000 deaths and more than 110,000 infected people. He acknowledged that he shares the suffering of Italians in this health emergency and asked to respect the precautionary measures ordered by the government, which extended movement restrictions to contain the pandemic until April 13.“My Italian heart is lacerated by the images of terrible suffering that show the tragedies that affect the families of our country. Today we must think about relieving the pain of those who suffer, we must follow the rules that scientists tell us to defeat this damn virus, “wrote Infantino.“Congratulations to the volunteers, I am next to the modern heroes, the nurses and the doctors. Congratulations to those who make solidarity gestures to buy masks and medical devices,” he concluded.
