FIFA's anti-corruption advisers urged president Sepp Blatter's executive committee on Friday to "demonstrate leadership" and resist attempts to dilute reforms of soccer's world governing body.
Criticized on all sides after a series of scandals, FIFA's executive committee members should not be publicly targeted by the governing body's anti-corruption advisers, President Sepp Blatter said Friday.
FIFA's anti-corruption adviser called for swift publication on Friday of a Swiss court document revealing which soccer officials took millions of dollars from marketing agency ISL as kickbacks from World Cup broadcasting deals.
Global anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International has ended its working relationship with FIFA because past allegations of wrongdoing in world soccer won't be investigated.
FIFA appointed Swiss anti-corruption expert Mark Pieth on Wednesday to lead the reform of soccer's world governing body following a series of scandals.
Pieth had told a sports governance conference that "older" FIFA elected officials were resisting the reform proposals that Blatter invited his group to propose after bribery and vote-buying allegations damaged soccer's governing body.
