France’s player union calls for calendar overhaul after injury wave


Popular News

France’s National Union of Professional Footballers (UNFP) is urging a revamp of the soccer calendar following a wave of great accidents amongst gamers.

Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga suffered a knee ligament damage in coaching with France, whereas clubmate Aurelien Tchouameni went down with a stress fracture to his left foot throughout their win over Barcelona final month.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery is out for the remainder of the yr after the 17-year-old picked up an ankle damage, making his debut for the Les Bleus.

“We were right. We knew it. We said it. Repeatedly. And said it again,” the UNFP mentioned in an announcement late Wednesday.

“But while senior executives are obliged to listen to us, it’s rare that they actually listen to us, especially when the interests at stake go beyond the boundaries of the field.”

The UNFP mentioned it was “high time to undertake a thorough reform of the calendar”.

“If the post-World Cup period has vindicated all those who are calling for an overhaul of the fixture list, these are only the first signs of an even deeper crisis that will also end up damaging the spectacle,” it added.
