The Perfect Combination

 

You said at a press conference last week that FIFA President Gianni Infantino has expressed his interest in cooperation with FIDE if you win the elections. How do you see a cooperation between FIDE and FIFA?

‘I believe this partnership can bring a lot to chess, and also to FIFA. One idea is cross-activities, for example inviting football players to chess events as role models for kids. With sports you can achieve lots of things. And the same from chess to football: in football academies we should have chess schools, a chess component that will help young football players to improve their intellectual capacity, to learn other things, to improve their education in general.’

Peter Doggers interviews FIDE presidential candidate Arkady Dvorkovich

So two of the world’s most corrupt sports organisations will collaborate under the leadership of a politician serving one of the world’s most corrupt regimes.

Sweet.
