Corruption in football is widespread, according to anti-corruption lobbyist and #NewFIFANow organiser Jaimie Fuller.
Sam Allardyce was recently sacked as England manager, having being caught by undercover journalists arranging to earn extra money by doing motivational speeches for a bogus firm in the Far East.
Fuller, who will be a guest speaker at the One Zero Con event at the RDS this Friday, has long been very vocal against issues like corruption in sport governance and drugs in sport.
The one-time FIFA presidential candidate and executive chairman of sportswear giant Skins was a guest on Now That’s What I Call Sport earlier.
He told 98FM’s Jamie Moore that corruption in football is “culturally pervasive” and said “there are a litany of managers who have been copping backhanders from agents for cuts of transfer fees.”
Fuller also believes that corruption in high-level sport is NOT inevitable, despite the huge sums of money involved, he feels that FIFA is still a “farce” and insisted the FIFA leadership still needs a clearout and also had his say on the recent TUE controversy at Team Sky.
