Give and take …

What to say; We live in a time when money dominates football, the sport has grown into industry, and football players are considered assets … Assets not for their own and for their own pocket, but for their team, for the appetites and the funds of others!

For more than ten days, an aircraft has been lost to the Channel Sea. This was a 28-year-old young man from Santa Fe’s Kululus, there in northeastern Argentina, who came to Europe to pursue his dream of becoming a professional footballer. To pull a family and himself from poverty, to change the life of his own and of his descendants in part …

According to the French newspaper L’Equipe, in a communication between Sala and his manager, Willie MacAquy, in an effort to find a company that would take him from French Nantes to Cardiff, Wales, his agent said, among other things: “I make over 600 transcripts a year, I do not care about your personal items, your finances and your family, I just do business”! Strong? Through this attitude, it is highlighted how commercialized football has been, crowding the human side. He did not care about the manager’s detail, the player went to sign, he had to carry the rest of his life another day! Unbelievable …

Bad lies, we live in the age when money dominates football, it defies it. The sport has grown into industry and players are considered assets in which the clubs invest to cash in on their funds. I’m not saying, it is remarkable how much the king of sports has grown up … but his human side has been put to a second fate, and that must be a matter of concern to us.

In every country that does not have a huge football talent production, a row of foreign footballers arrives each year. Same in Greece. Of these, some are leaving without even seeing their face. An irrepressible one is taking and taking, successive transactions, and human interest in nothing. Non-existent!

Nisafa anymore. Human welfare must be our priority. Every group that wants to work with respect, responsibility and professionalism towards the people who employ or serve (if it is an agent) must be constantly vigilant and work consistently and prevent their human side. Payables, extortion, cannon, and tax changes and statutes to serve economic purposes, let us decide that society is a past unremitting! Otherwise, as the downhill is over, we get down, we will start as football and as a society not to emerge, but to scrape the bottom of the barrel …
