FIFA president Gianni Infantino was spotted watching Millwall’s match against Norwich in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Infantino was pictured deep in conversation with Millwall director Constantine Gonticas as he took his seat in the director’s box at The Den ahead of the game.

The Swiss football administrator is in London for the International Football Association Board meeting and had earlier spoken about getting rid of ‘time wasting’ from the sport.

“It has been widely appreciated by everyone. We want to fight against time-wasting, we want the fans to enjoy the game,’ said Infantino.

“We have to ensure that also the application of the laws of the game are universal,’ Infantino said, noting they were currently inconsistent with average effective ball-in-play time in leagues worldwide ranging from 50 to 60 minutes per game.

“We will monitor leagues all over the world to ensure proper stoppage time is played. I don’t think there is any coercive measure to be taken.”
