Berlin (dpa) – A higher salary limit in football is quite possible. Two legal opinions from the Bundestag scientific services come to this view, which SPD politician Thomas Oppermann has charged according to a report by the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”.
A condition to cover the million dollar salary is the introduction by the European Football Association (UEFA). The reports will be presented to clubs in the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga on Tuesday at the DFL general assembly. Oppermann, who has been chairman of the German Football Association (DFB) Ethics Committee since 2019, wants to promote such an upper limit – also internationally.
“The entire football business model suddenly came to an end due to the Corona crisis,” Oppermann told “SZ.” At the private conference in Brussels in the autumn, he wanted to explore the opportunities to “obtain a corresponding regulation under European law”. Top football representatives had recently expressed skepticism that such an arrangement should be maintained.
