The Sunday Times has given evidence to an MP claiming that several FIFA members accepted $1.5 million from Qatar. Clearly the implication is that these FIFA members were paid by Qatar to vote for them to host the 2022 World Cup. The two individuals specifically named in the Sunday Times evidence include FIFA vice-president Issa Hayatou from Cameroon and Jacques Anouma from the Ivory Coast. Additionally Lord Triesman, former chairman of the FA accused four FIFA executive members for asking for gifts in return for their votes for the 2018 World Cup hosting rights.
This isn’t the first time, nor the last time that FIFA will be accused of corruption. That there may be evidence implicating the 2nd in charge of FIFA of taking bribe money is a big deal in my opinion. Nothing is proved at the moment, but these allegations can not be taken lightly.
