Senators accuse US Soccer over FIFA scandal

United States soccer chiefs knew or should have known about widespread corruption at FIFA, a US senator said Wednesday, calling for urgent reform at the highest levels of football. Richard Blumenthal was addressing a Senate subcommittee hearing scrutinizing FIFA and the US Soccer Federation, after US authorities in May indicted 14 people — including top football officials — over tens of millions of dollars of alleged bribes for media rights contracts. “The facts show that there had to be either wilful ignorance or blatant incompetence on the part of many of the members of this organization (FIFA), and that’s true of US Soccer as well,” said Blumenthal.
