Fifa's vice-president, Jack Warner may face expulsion from football's world governing body for his role in the World Cup ticket scandal. In their executive committee meeing in Zurich on friday FIFA will be making an enquiry into the role played by Warner.He has been identified in a report by the auditors Ernst & Young as having sold World Cup tickets at up to four times their face value. It has been claimed that the Trinidad & Tobago official made at least £500,000 by trading in the tickets.
On monday morning - Warner- speaking at the opening ceremony of the six-day FIFA Futuro III Referee Instructors’ Course being conducted at the Dr Joao Havelange Centre of Excellence, Macoya had some stern words to say about the standards of refereeing in the region and about financial integrity.
“In fact some our referees have been mercenaries and most times all they are concerned with is how much they can earn for officiating the game and they care very little about their performance on the field.” he said.
Now there's a bit of irony in this somewhere...
