Sacked for trying to clean up FIFA
Maduro forced out for standing in way of Russian politician
FIFA was accused yesterday of interfering with the work of the man they brought in to clear up the corruption-mired body to stay in power.
Miguel Maduro, a Portuguese former minister, said Fifa bosses had meddled with his work, ignored the organisation’s rules and finally removing him to bolster their own positions.
Maduro told MPs on the Commons sport committee that only “external pressure” would force Fifa to clean up its act and gave a damning assessment of president Gianni Infantino’s commitment to reform.
