Inter: Modric case closed

FIFA has cleared Inter of any wrongdoing after Real Madrid accused them of illegally approaching Luka Modric.

Madrid had reported Inter to FIFA, claiming the Nerazzurri had violated Article 18 of FIFA’s Regulations of the Status and Transfer of Players with regards to Modric.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport writes no more action will be taken after hearing the accounts of both clubs and the midfielder himself.

Best awards: Ronaldo yes, Buffon no

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been nominated for The Best FIFA Men’s Player and Puskas awards.

Ronaldo’s 15 goals fired Real Madrid to a third consecutive Champions League last season, while his overhead kick against Juventus in the quarter-finals was widely considered the best goal of 2017-18.

However, he is not joined on the podium by long-time rival Lionel Messi as former teammate Luka Modric and Liverpool’s ex-Roma winger Mohamed Salah make up the other finalists.

Platini: VAR’s killing football!

Former Juventus star Michel Platini insists VAR has ‘killed’ football and ‘hasn’t brought more justice’ to the game.

VAR is widely considered to be football’s newest innovation after being used in Serie A and the 2018 World Cup, among other competitions, but Platini – a long-time critic of the technology – made it clear it only served to protect the interests of those in power.

“VAR is a DIY video, which hasn’t brought more justice to football,” the disgraced ex-UEFA chief told Sport.

Real Madrid cannot accuse Inter of ‘tapping up’ Luka Modric because he confessed to approaching the Nerazzurri, it’s reported.

The two clubs got into an ugly public row, with legal action threatened against La Liga President Javier Tebas, over the midfielder’s status.

The Merengues reported Inter to FIFA for illegal contacts with their player.

Real report Inter over Modric?

Not only are Real Madrid not going to let Luka Modric go, but it’s rumoured they’ll report Inter for ‘tapping up’ the player.

Modric and his representatives have been pushing for weeks to make this move to San Siro, claiming President Florentino Perez had promised to let him go if they won the Champions League for a record third season running.

However, with Cristiano Ronaldo going to Juventus in similar circumstances, Perez slammed the door shut.

Allegri up for FIFA’s best Coach

Juventus boss Max Allegri is the only Serie A candidate for The Best FIFA Men’s Coach award.

Allegri guided Juve to their fourth straight domestic double last season, but Eusebio Di Francesco’s work in masterminding Roma’s run to the Champions League semi-finals has gone unnoticed.

Elsewhere, ex-Bianconeri Zinedine Zidane is in with a shout of retaining the accolade, having won another Champions League with Real Madrid, and his former Old Lady teammate Didier Deschamps is among those considered for leading France to the World Cup.

Confirmed: Next World Cup in winter

FIFA has confirmed that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be played between November 21 and December 18. 

Gianni Infantino’s announcement on Friday means Roberto Mancini’s Italy will have to wait until 2026 for another crack at a summer World Cup, although the FIFA chief admitted a 48-team competition was still not a certainty. 

“The World Cup in 2022 will be played from November 21 to December 18: the idea is to involve 48 teams,” Infantino said at the closing Press conference for Russia 2018.

FIFA revamp rankings system

FIFA President Gianni Infantino announced a revamp of the way FIFA world rankings are calculated, which could help Italy in future.

The Azzurri failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, partly because they were second seeds in the draw and ended up in the same group as Spain.

As only one side could go through from each group, this almost automatically doomed the Nazionale to the play-offs, where they went out against Sweden.

Rosetti: '3D VAR technology

The next stage of VAR will see maxi-screen replays for the fans and 3D graphics to represent offside calls, said Project Leader Roberto Rosetti.

The former referee is working as the Refereeing Project Leader in both Serie A and with FIFA for the 2018 World Cup.

After its first season in Italy, the Video Assistant Referee technology vastly cut the number of errors, yellow and red cards as well as reducing simulation by 35 per cent.
