Brazilian legend wants to clear up game.
Former Brazil star striker Romario says he will increase his efforts to try and expose alleged irregularities involving FIFA and Brazilian football federation president Ricardo Teixeira.
The 45-year-old, now a congressman, says he is teaming up with other Brazilian legislators to investigate football’s governing body ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The former Barcelona star insists he will pressure Swiss authorities to release documents that prove bribery took place.
Papers allegedly show the head of the Brazilian FA, Ricardo Teixeira, was one of the FIFA members accused of taking kickbacks from a former FIFA marketing partner in the 1990s.
BBC’s Panorama programme reported the court file shows Teixeira and former FIFA president Joao Havelange received payments from ISL.
Romario says he wants to make sure there is transparency of those involved in the organization of the 2014 World Cup.
Teixeira is president of the tournament’s organizing committee.
