South Africa paid millions to CFU under Warner, says country's FA

Jun 1, 2015 | Soccer, Sports | 0 comments

Reports from South Africa say in 2008 that that country’s government did pay 10 million US dollars to the Caribbean Football Union (CFU), at the time led by Jack Warner, who’s now at the centre of recent corruption claims. Danny Jordaan, president of the South African Football Association (SAFA), is said to have confirmed this. Officials deny it was a bribe to get the 2010 World Cup, but US prosecutors say it was illegal. Last week, several FIFA officials were arrested on bribery and racketeering charges. In even more recent news, FIFA has suspended CONCACAF general secretary Enrique Sanz in connection with the scandal.
