Prince William's Royal Intervention of FIFA Scandal

15 30.05.2015 Инфо

Prince William has sensationally intervened in the Fifa corruption scandal with an unprecedented speech criticising world football’s governing body.
The Duke of Cambridge urged Fifa to deal with the allegations of widespread bribery levelled at the organisation by US and Swiss investigators for the sake of football and its fans around the world.
In his speech as Football Association (FA) president before Saturday's FA Cup Final at Wembley, the Prince gave his backing the FA’s tough-line stance on Fifa and its opposition to its President Sepp Blatter, who stands accused of presiding over “rampant, systemic and deep-rooted corruption”.
After being re-elected as president of Fifa for a fifth consecutive term on Friday, the 79-year-old went on the offensive – accusing European football of conducting a “hate” campaign against him and condemning the targeting of his organisation by the US judicial authorities.
