The incredible request of Fifa after the death of Pelé

Pelé passed away last Thursday from cancer at the age of 82. The president of Fifa promises him an exceptional tribute.

The king is dead. A three-time World Cup winner – a unique feat to date – Pele lost his ultimate battle with cancer, going broke last week aged 82. The world of football, and beyond, has been in mourning ever since. In Brazil, a country in full political and economic rupture, the people cry in unison for the one who made their glory.

The King is eternalsays Thierry Henry, who these days has paid a most vibrant tribute to the legend of football. As long as there is football, as long as there is a World Cup, we will always talk about Pelé. It is an inspiration for all generations, no matter what, until the end of time. “An opinion shared by the president of Fifa Gianni Infantino. With a controversial project in mind.

We asked all the federations in the world to hold a minute of silence before the matches. And what I can tell you is that we will ask the federations, 211 countries in total, to rename a stadium in the name of Pelé. That there is in every country of the world a stadium in the name of Pelé “, breathes the boss of the parent company of football, present in Santos to attend the funeral of the sacred monster. A strange injunction, which will not necessarily make sense for each of the associations affiliated with Fifa.
