Fifa vice-president Jack Warner has resigned, world football’s governing body has confirmed according to the BBC.
“As a consequence of Mr Warner’s resignation, all ethics committee procedures against him have been closed and the presumption of innocence is maintained,” said a Fifa statement. Warner was suspended pending an investigation into bribery allegations.
What a typical fucking shambles. So resigned for one of two reasons I am guessing;
1. He was innocent but the love the game meant he didn’t want to drag this out.
2. He is guilty and knows it and this way he gets to keep the money and FIFA don’t have to play it out.
Naturally it’s #2 but the fact that FIFA then deem that his behaviour is not unimportant because it no longer embarrasses them in public is shameful. The while old-school management structure is a sham. So damn typical of Europe and the rest. Having watched the Senna documentary the other week and seeing Senna’s battles with the blatantly partisan former leadership, its time for the rug to be pulled out from under FIFA. I suspect we’d find a lot under there.
