• Scandal-hit FIFA to review crucial reform package


    ZURICH: FIFA’s executive committee was set to open a crucial meeting on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) with major reforms up for review, as outsiders voice doubt that world football’s tainted governing body is capable of fixing itself. The reform package is the work of a panel led by Francois Carrard, who won praise for overhauling a graft-ridden International Olympic Committee more than a decade ago and is now tasked with a similar job at FIFA, mired in an unprecedented scandal. At the two-day meeting at FIFA’s Zurich headquarters, Carrard’s proposals will be presented to the body’s top brass — minus its suspended president and vice president, Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini, the highest-profile casualties of the chaos within the organization.
