A former St Lucian Football Administrator has weighed in on the discussions coming out of bribery allegations against former CONCACAF President Jack Warner

The US district court alleges massive corruption by Warner within its prosecution of 14 people, including serving and former high-ranking Fifa officials and sports marketing company executives alleged to have paid bribes.

As president from 1990 of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) and a FIFA executive Committee (EXCO) Member, Warner from the early 1990s “began to leverage his influence and exploit his official positions for personal gain”, the indictment alleges. His demand for and receipt of bribes, the authorities allege, was a key part of a 24-year racketeering and bribery conspiracy, dating from 1991 to 2015, which led to “endemic corruption” of FIFA itself.

Former President of the St Lucia Football Association and the Caribbean Football Union from 1983-1994 Earl Huntley says he is not surprised at the turn of events.

He describes the arrest of the seven top FIFA officials as a sad day for football in the Caribbean and the Americas.
