THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

Via All About The Angles

icon brokenball10 February ~ FIFA's commercial dealings have often been questioned, with the governing body last week labelled "just like a little mafia" by their former media director Guido Tognoni. All About The Angles has focused on the organisation's treatment of employees, citing the example of current general secretary Jérôme Valcke's involvement in a 2006 sponsorship scandal and suggesting that "FIFA looks after its own members in methods similar to the protective nature of organised criminals... If a member of the organisation makes a sacrifice for the benefit of the organisation then this will always be remembered later down the track".
