FIFA president, Gianni Infantino, has expressed reservations about plans by the Spanish La Liga to stage fixtures in the United States.
La Liga entered a 15-year marketing agreement with Relevant Sports which will see some league games played in the United States.
Girona will be playing its home league game against Barcelona at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on January 26, 2019.
LaLiga president, Javier Tebas, has however branded Infantino’s comments “incoherent”.
“I would have liked for him to have had another opinion.
“Those remarks seem to me incoherent with everything that is happening in football [in the U.S.] and with Major League Soccer.
“We need careful consideration as it would be rather clumsy of us if we only went there to play 90 minutes and then left. We are going to do a lot more. We are going to make football better known there,” Tebas said.
