Marco van Basten during his period as Chief Officer for Technical Development of the FIFA annoyed by the conservative attitude within the wereldvoetbalbond. The former topspits felt antagonized and therefore decided in October.
The 54-year-old Van Basten was at the FIFA since 2016 on innovation and technological development, but he noted in that two-year period that the new plans are not in the taste fell in the bond.
“In this way was for me no sense to continue”, says Van Basten Thursday in a interview with The Volkskrant. “Where improvements are possible, you should also do your best to get them to run. That was also the approach. The introduction of the videoscheidsrechter was the FIFA the maximum achievable.”
