Arsene Wenger accused of 'discrimination'

Arsene Wenger accused of ‘discrimination’

The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) has strongly condemned the “extremely unfortunate statements” made by Arsene Wenger, FIFA’s director of football development, regarding his speech last May about “Europe” and “the rest of the world”. “Conmebol rejects and condemns the extremely regrettable statements of the senior FIFA official, who is very close to the presidency of the institution” held by Swiss Gianni Infantino, the federation said in a press statement.

Wenger said during a conference of German coaches that the “French striker, Mbappe, is of African origin, but he trained in Europe. If he had been born in Cameroon, he would not have become the striker he is today,” and that “there is Europe and the rest of the world.” The Latin Federation considered that “Wenger is ignorant of the valuable contribution of African and non-European players to world football, and that he exhibits a humiliating bias that renders sports institutions that do not exist in Europe invisible.”
