It needed shutting down after the Blatter and Platini fiasco but they allowed it to trundle on and now this. The sooner it is replaced the better. The name is synonymous with bribery and corruption.
I wish the Swiss would take their responsibilities seriously having provided a home for FIFA and UEFA.....and arrest the lot on corruption charges.

And enact a law allowing them to recover all the illgotten gains these lot have accumulated.

Absolutely laughable. Particularly as Infantino was elected as the post-corruption candidate.

This is a country that made a killing on war profiteering and Nazi gold, corruption isn't exactly new to them.

Sadly the answer could be 'you should have seen the other guys'

Both FIFA and UEFA now have access to wealth beyond most moderately sized countries, and it is controlled by a self perpetuating group of people - it might work if FIFA and/or UEFA were run by a benevolent dictatorship, but all the evidence coming out suggests there is no benevolence, just a lot of self interest.

Really is time that system was smashed. Just a question as how to do that and how to put an alternative structure in its place.
