Infantino facing a fresh ethics complaint: report
A NEW York University professor who resigned from a FIFA committee has filed an ethics complaint against the football body’s leadership, the NewYork Times reported on Wednesday. According to the newspaper, the complaint lodged by Joseph Weiler claims that FIFA President Gianni Infantino, Infantino’s top deputy and other senior officials intervened in their committee’s work in a bid to block scrutiny of senior officials. The report came on the same day that Miguel Maduro, the former chairman of FIFA’s governance committee, gave a devastating indictment before a British parliamentary committee of Infantino’s commitment to reform. Maduro said the FIFA leadership interfered with his committee’s work, ignored rules and sacked him in order to maintain power, saying only “external pressure” would force the corruption-tainted organisation to change.
