He said that was a “travesty of justice” after no investigation was lodged against UEFA president Michel Platini’s support for Qatar.Speaking at the Leaders sport business summit in London, Chung said: “FIFA has become a badge of shame. To call it a mafia is almost insulting to mafia, so blatant and arrogant is its corruption.”At FIFA money and power have blinded Blatter in the virtues of sportsmanship. “For his payment without executive committee approval, I plan to sue Mr Blatter for embezzlement in court. Mr Blatter in short is a hypocrite and a liar.”Chung pointed out that Chilean Harold Mayne-Nicholls was banned for seven years by FIFA’s ethics committee after asking Qatar for placements for family members while he was in charge of the technical inspectors looking at the World Cup bids. Mayne-Nicholls last year said he wanted to run against Blatter for the presidency.He added: “Mr Platini voted for Qatar and his son landed a job a with a Qatar company as chief executive. The ethics committee did not even start an investigation, this is a travesty of justice.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more
