FIFA president Gianni Infantino is still very new to his job, but he’s already proving to be way more chill than Sepp Blatter. 

For example, check out Infantino (or G, as he probably calls himself in these situations) chilling in a New York City bar, watching a Champions League game with the commoners. How many people actually recognized Infantino and whether or not he used a FIFA slush fund to buy a round of drinks doesn’t really matter, look at how normal he is!

Infantino probably left after paying $18 for a cocktail.
