So, the (oxymoron alert) Fifa ethics committee has opened an investigation into its president, Sepp Blatter. Not before time, some would say. The most amusing part of the whole exercise is that Mohamed bin Hammam, who denies bribery, has accused Sepp Blatter of knowing about the alleged cash payments. Talk about ‘own goal’.
With the three top Fifa officials, bin Hammam, Blatter and Warner, under investigation for bribery and corruption, now would be a good time to get rid of the lot, from top to bottom, and start afresh.
