Fifa president Sepp Blatter says he wants to set up an anti-corruption committee to police world football’s governing body.
The move comes after allegations of corruption dogged Fifa throughout the bidding process and voting for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
Blatter said: “This committee will strengthen our credibility and give us a new image in terms of transparency.
“I will take care of it personally, to ensure there is no corruption at Fifa.” (BBC Sport)
So there you have it. Any worries you had about FIFA getting it’s house in order were in fact misguided. Football’s world governing body is ready to act to quash any speculative talk of corruption and Sepp Blatter will be in charge of the whole damned thing so clearly there is nothing for you to worry about because clearly the head of FIFA will try his hardest to root out the evil that is intrinsically linked with the backward organization.
Seriously though, this is just bizarre. Any hope that FIFA has for being seen as a credible trust worthy institution will go out the window if there is not some sort of independent investigation into the ways in which it operates and the idea that Mr. Blatter is the man to do the job would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic.
