'No answers' on Warner TV claim

Click to follow

Fifa have failed to provide adequate answers to former vice-president Jack Warner's claims that he was provided with World Cup television rights for as a little as a dollar as a reward for supporting Sepp Blatter, according to a reformer.

Fifa yesterday insisted that the awarding of the rights to Warner were nothing to do with his support for Blatter in the 1998 and 2002 presidential elections. But Conservative MP Damian Collins, who is campaigning for Fifa reform, said: "They have not provided satisfactory answers to these questions at all, especially as to why TV rights to World Cup finals have been handed out to senior members of Fifa's executive committee."
