'FIFA must compensate'
German Football League (DFL) president Reinhard Rauball has criticised FIFA for insisting they will not compensate European clubs despite proposals to hold the 2022 World Cup in November and December.
Plans to play the 2022 tournament in Qatar in the middle of the European season have still to be ratified next month by FIFA's executive committee, but the proposal has met widespread condemnation in Germany.
The FIFA proposal is based on common sense due to extreme temperatures in the Middle East state during June and July, when World Cup finals are traditionally held, but the date switch would cause major disruption to European competitions.
On Tuesday, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, said he expected FIFA to compensate Europe's leagues and clubs for losing their top players at a key stage of the season, but FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke has said there will be "no financial compensation given".
