Soccer and Society: Vikas Shah’s interview with FIFA’s Jérôme Valcke

Great interview by Vikas “Thought Economist” Shah.

Jérôme Valcke explains how FIFA sees football as a “school of life.”

Perhaps someday FIFA itself will undergo a revolution, become more transparent, and be a greater force for good in the world. Today, I’m sorry, but in my opinion, the game goes on despite FIFA, not because of it. The corruption we see in FIFA is a symptom of globalization and crony capitalism.

At soccerblog.com, we’ve always viewed soccer as the world’s greatest religion, and we continue to look forward to the quadrennial pilgrimage we call the World Cup. Someday, there will be a revolution in FIFA, and we’ll see the organization live up to it’s potential.
