According to information collected by Vn88, FIFA must compensate Barca for damage because the main pillar of the La Liga club was injured.
Barcelona is the team that received a lot of damage because of the FIFA Virus. Players like Memphis Depay, Frenkie de Jong, Jules Koundé and Ronald Araujo had to return to the Nou Camp due to injury problems. Of these, Araujo’s situation was the most serious.
The Uruguayan midfielder decided to undergo surgery to completely resolve the thigh injury he had just met in a friendly match against Iran. This means that the star born in 1998 accepted to lose the 2022 World Cup and sat out for 2-3 months. Vn88 said this injury of Araujo is a loss for Barca because he plays a pivotal role at the club.
Because of the severity of the injury, FIFA had to compensate Barca. It is known that this level of compensation only applies to injuries lasting more than 28 days and up to a year. This is reflected in the Club Protection Plan, which was approved three seasons ago and is valid until December 31 of this year.
According to a source from Vn88, FIFA will pay Barca an amount of 20,458 euros per day. In 1 year, the maximum amount that FIFA must meet is 7.5 million euros.
Money can hardly solve Barca’s losses. Araujo’s injury will affect the club’s defense. Andreas Christensen, Eric Garcia or Kounde will try to fill the position left by Araujo in the near future.
