Infantino hits out at ‘FIFA bashing’ and ‘fake news’

first_imgBy Simon EvansMANAMA, (Reuters) – FIFA president Gianni Infantino took aim at critics of world football’s governing body yesterday, saying the organisation had reformed and was now a victim of “fake news” and “FIFA bashing”.Speaking to the organisation’s 67th congress in the Bahraini capital, Infantino, who replaced Sepp Blatter as head of FIFA in 2016, said it was truly transforming itself.“We are rebuilding FIFA’s reputation after all that happened. We took over the organisation at its deepest point,” said Infantino, adding that there was no room for anyone who wanted to enrich themselves by “abusing football”.Several dozen football officials, mainly from Latin America, were indicted in the United States in 2015 on corruption-related charges, sparking the worst crisis in FIFA’s history.Infantino said criticism of the organisation under his leadership had not been fair, given improved transparency, controls and ethics procedures.“There is a lot of fake news and alternative facts about FIFA circulating,” he said. “FIFA bashing has become a national sport in some countries”.But at the post-congress press conference, Infantino said he was not referring to the media.“It is not by the media that I was meaning. There are a lot of people who are spreading a lot of wrong and false information.“Maybe sometimes you (should) question those who are giving you information.“Sometimes we have seen that the information given is not the right one but is provided just to harm the organisation,” he said.Asked if he could give any examples of fake news regarding FIFA, Infantino said: “No. But generally, it is my feeling”The Swiss administrator also made some barbed comments about some of his critics among governance experts after a week in which FIFA’s Ethics heads were replaced.“In the past many highly-paid experts, paid millions, have been hired by FIFA to help reform FIFA. Let me ask you, what did they do? They simply rubber-stamped a sick and corrupt system,” he said.“Where were all these self-proclaimed gurus and experts? They all miserably failed. I will, we will, not accept good governance lessons from any individuals who miserably failed to protect football.”While suggesting FIFA’s internal experts had failed, he offered praise to outside investigations, thanking “courts all around the world” who had prosecuted corruption cases.“We need your help and we count on your help,” he added, saying there was no place in his organisation for any wrongdoing.“If there’s anyone in this room or outside of this room who still thinks he can enrich himself, that he can abuse football, I have one clear and strong message to tell him: Leave football and leave football now. We don’t want you.”FIFA’s budget plans for 2018 and their auditor’s report and financial statements for 2016 were all voted through without any questions being raised in the congress hall.New heads of several committees were elected including a new ethics investigator and judge with Infantino describing criticism of the replacement of the existing team as “a storm in a teacup”.last_img read more
