Wales forward, Gareth Bale has come out to say that football’s governing bodies must stop putting money first and instead prioritize player welfare. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the earlier these bodies start realizing that there is actually no product without the players, the better for the world of football.
Bale added that something definitely has to change, and the people at the top must ensure the players are treated more reasonably.
His words, “They need to look after players, without the players there is no product,”
“There will be consequences in the long term, people’s bodies can’t deal with that kind of calendar year after year.”
“Something has to change, the people at the top of the game have to do something, but unfortunately money comes into it.”
“Someone mentioned to me over lunch the other day that Kevin De Bruyne could play 79 [games] next season after just a three-week break,”
“It’s too much, things obviously need to change, every player will tell you there are way too many games.”
“It’s impossible to play at a high level for that amount of games.”
