Dalton: It’s time for real reform to end FIFA corruption

European Conservative and Reformists MEPs are leading calls for a proper clean-up of football’s world governing body, following months of damning allegations about corruption.

European Conservative and Reformists MEPs are leading calls for a proper clean-up of football’s world governing body, following months of damning allegations about corruption.

Speaking in the European Parliament this evening, Dan Dalton MEP will say that the decision by Sepp Blatter to resign is a welcome move, but that this should only be the start of a full deep-clean of FIFA.

If it becomes clear that the 2018 and 2022 tournaments were awarded due to corrupt practices, then there should be no hesitation in re-awarding them.

Mr Dalton, a former professional sportsman, will say: “The rotting core of the once beautiful game has finally exploded. The ensuing fallout is a painful but necessary cleansing process.

“If we are to clean-up FIFA once and for all, we need to dig down and remove all the dirt, and find out whether corruption influenced the Russian and Qatari World Cup bids.

“Whilst I welcome Blatter’s resignation, he should go immediately for the sake of FIFA’s credibility, to allow an open and unhindered process of reform”.
