Brazil introduces plan to renegotiate club debts, force fiscal responsibility

Fans of the Brazilian domestic game have had little to celebrate given the clubs' poor management over the years.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Brazil's government wants to let football clubs renegotiate $1.2 billion in debts but in the process force them to start spending more wisely.

Congress still has to approve the measure.

In order to take advantage of the government's favorable conditions, clubs have to commit...
