Dyukov: the exclusion of the RFU from FIFA will not come, we hope that the situation will be resolved
MOSCOW, June 23 – The International Football Federation (FIFA) will not exclude the Russian Football Union (RFU) from the organization, RFU head Alexander Dyukov told reporters.
In March, the International Football Federation (FIFA) and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) issued a joint statement according to which Russian teams and clubs were suspended from participation in all international competitions for an indefinite period.
“It will not come to the expulsion of the RFU from FIFA. There is a dialogue with FIFA. The very decision to remove it was unexpected for us. We would like to receive clarification on this matter in the near future. We hope that the situation will be resolved in the near future,” Dyukov said.
