Ya hey…it’s no secret that the words dodgy and corrupt are a pretty decent description of soccer’s governing body FIFA and its f**k-you-i’m-the-president Sepp Blatter.
Well..the kak is hitting the fan amidst allegations of bribery, vote buying, photographs of bribe money and just plain old corruption after one of the now-suspended Fifa executives has revealed an email sent to him by secretary general Jerome Valke that alleges Qatar ‘bought’ the hosting rights to the 2022 World Cup.
Here’s the email:
“Dear Jack, lots of questions
“Firstly I got also a very, very good feedback about the draw, its organization and the media coverage. It is great the FWC Final Draw is not the only one getting such attention but now all including the U-17. Football is really big.
“For FICO, I perfectly understand your position about England. There is not a major point it is true to be discussed. I think MBH (Mohammed bin Hammam) will try to attack us on various points but am prepared to answer. Nothing very new since Robben Island 2009 Exco!
“For MBH, I never understood why he was running. If really he thought he had a chance or just being an extreme way to express much he does not like anymore JSB. Or he thought you can buy FIFA as they bought the WC.
“I have a bet since day one, he will withdraw but on June 1st after his 10 min speech. By doing so he can say he push Blatter to make new commitments bla bla bla and get out under applause. Before means he is a loser.
“So … He will get some votes. Less than 60 today after CAF support. It will be the ‘coup de grace’ if you would officially send a message as the CONCACAF President by saying CONCACAF supports unanimously.
“So am not giving you advice but just feeing about what I think is the situation.
“Finally just coming back to wives. You know Jack ruled are for the majority. Why?
“Because without a minority will always abuse! Some and a few members are given a special authorization to bring their partner at their coast and it is fine but we have a number of issues and that is why this regulation was decided a very long time ago before I was appointed for sure.
“Talking about the before I was told and it is confirmed, Linsi went with MBH to visit a few MA’s. Was maybe the ex-future SG. Also one agency, Sportfive, has being very supportive and organized for MBH meeting with MA’s they have under contract.
“Wow, just wake up, being in San Francisco for a few hours before flying at 1pm to Sao Paulo for the day. And am writing so much ).
“Enjoy your day,
Valcke says the email is genuine. Down know why ,but even if it’s an email about corruption i felt rather proud that Robben Island was mentioned hey.
And what is Sepp Blatter’s response.
