In the draft resolution, at the beginning of paragraph 1, insert the following sentences: "Too little money harms football, too much is killing it. We need to prevent football from self-destructing."
It was not possible, for formal reasons, to have this text as a sub-title to the report as the rapporteur had wished. The Committee therefore considers that this text should feature at the very beginning of the draft resolution.
In the draft resolution, paragraph 3, delete the following words: "A lack of money is harmful to football, too much is killing it."
This amendment is linked to the adoption of amendment 1 and is intended to avoid repetition.
In the draft resolution, after paragraph 15, insert the following paragraph:
"The Assembly asks FIFA, UEFA and the bodies representing leagues, clubs and players at national and international levels to take the expertise of GRECO into consideration with a view to improving, where applicable, their internal control procedures and also stepping up supervision in relation to dubious transfer transactions."
It is important to draw the attention of partners in the football world to GRECO's expertise; this body would be willing to collaborate with FIFA, UEFA and other partners so wishing, in order to analyse their control systems and identify any areas for improvement.
