It really happened. Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, defended Conquest's decision to move the Copa Libertadores de America final between River Plate and Boca Juniors in Madrid, Spain
At a press conference held in Argentina, after participating in some G20 activities, the helmsman of the governing body of world football, clarified that the definition "It will be played in Madrid, which is also a bit of South America perhaps, but that's something that marks before and then for football … Madrid is a little South America!"
For incidents that forced the end of the final, Infantino said "What has happened must be condemned and we all need to learn lessons from these actions and make sure that this will generate before and after, and that it will never happen again."
Reka's claim, which refused to play the final in Santiago Bernabeu, was given a counter-response by Infantino. "The contender is the one who makes the decisions, all parties agreed, FIFA approved the decision of CONMEBOL and played the match in Spain, it's not the only game in the world that can not be celebrated", he said.
And closed: "In football, we have a problem with violence that we need to root out. Conquest will have to make a decision. I think that my personal conviction is that you must always play. "
