In the dispute over bans on the world governing body at the World Cup in Qatar, Denmark is now ready to discuss a possible withdrawal from FIFA with other UEFA nations.

This was announced by Jesper Möller, chairman of the Danish Football Association DBU, in a press conference scheduled at short notice. “This is not a decision that has been made now. We’ve known about this for a long time. We’ve been discussing this in the Nordic region since August,” Möller said.

“I’ve reconsidered. I imagine there could be challenges if Denmark goes it alone. But let’s see if we can’t have a dialogue about things,” the DBU chairman continued.

He also has to think about how FIFA’s trust can be restored: “We have to evaluate what happened and then we have to develop a strategy – also with our Nordic colleagues.”

Möller accused FIFA around President Gianni Infantino of using “bullying methods” to prevent the wearing of the “One Love” bandage as a sign of diversity and integration. The DBU delegation was “upset” by this and stated that it would not officially support the current President Gianni Infantino in his re-election.

Möller announced a joint reaction with the other six European associations, which had refrained from their project at short notice due to the threat of sanctions from FIFA.
