Scandal-hit South America federation to elect head


ASUNCION: South American soccer confederation CONMEBOL looks to clean its image by choosing a new president Tuesday, as three of its former heads face US indictments in the FIFA corruption scandal. After being searched this month by investigators probing alleged bribes, CONMEBOL’s headquarters in Paraguay now hosts football chiefs from 10 countries who will choose a new leader and decide who to back for FIFA president. Senior figures said there was a consensus to elect as new CONMEBOL president Alejandro Dominguez, a 44-year-old businessman and current head of Paraguay’s football federation.
