• Chung slams FIFA dirty tricks


    PARIS: FIFA presidential candidate Chung Mong-Joon on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) warned the election to succeed Sepp Blatter was in danger of “being manipulated to a degree unseen even in previous notorious FIFA presidential elections.” The 63-year-old billionaire South Korean has been subjected to attacks in the German press, who have not cited their source, since he launched his campaign to replace Blatter last week. The 79-year-old Swiss stepped down shortly after winning a fifth term earlier this year with FIFA embroiled in allegations of corruption, 14 FIFA and sports business executives were charged by US authorities in May over more than $150 million in bribes allegedly paid for television and marketing deals. Seven FIFA officials have been detained but Blatter has not been linked to any corruption case.
