“The players, the coaches, all those who exercise responsibilities in the clubs complain about too many games … and now the pace of the World Cup should increase? It doesn’t make any sense, ”the Bavarian giant’s leader told the German magazine Kicker.
“We have to think about the health of the player,” he added.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Wednesday called for a consensus on the issue of organizing a biennial World Cup, and announced the convening of a summit in December on the matter.
The German Football Association (DFB), for its part, is also opposed to this possibility, and according to Hainer, FIFA should not change the current calendar with a World Cup every four years.

“The World Cup is one of the most important events in the world and not without reason,” said the Bayern president, who fears that the FIFA proposal will lead to “oversaturation.”
“Of course this idea is also aimed at generating supplementary income and money plays an important role in professional sports,” he recalled. “But you should never sacrifice football for the sake of economic interests.”
