Speaking about the new development, Mango as quoted by FIFPro said; “Players should be consulted and have a say when it comes to decisions that affect our job. I’ve joined FIFPRO’s Global Player Council in order to make a difference.”
“It’s important that the voices of players are heard,” said Nigeria forward Ajibade. “I’m looking forward to using my platform to help players in Africa and beyond.”
“Being a part of the Global Player Council means we can help footballers worldwide – such as protecting players against fake agents, or against government interference. I’m eager to get started,” said Reims’ Zimbabwean midfielder Munetsi.
The Global Player Council is a platform for active players with international experience, ensuring viewpoints from men’s and women’s football and different leagues from around the world are heard.
The council assists FIFPRO and its 66 affiliated national player associations to represent footballers in negotiations about global issues that directly affect them including the international match calendar, employment standards, the use of personal data, social media abuse, and more.
Lucy Bronze, Giorgio Chiellini, Saki Kumagai and Nicolas Tagliafico are among players who sit on the council.
