MEXICO CITY — FIFA's corruption crisis was declared to be over by President Gianni Infantino on Friday as the scandal-battered governing body broke new ground by appointing its first female and first non-European secretary general.
Senegalese United Nations official Fatma Samoura has no experience working in sports but Infantino hopes she can help FIFA improve its image and regain its credibility after far-reaching corruption, bribery air vapormax 2018 australia , and financial crimes by executives.
"Nobody can change the past but I can shape the future," Infantino told his first FIFA Congress as president since succeeding the banned Sepp Blatter. "FIFA is back on track. So I can officially inform you here, the crisis is over."
Blatter also said in December 2014 that "the crisis has stopped" after previous bribery cases. But within a year 42 officials and entities linked to soccer were indicted in an American investigation into bribery and fraud.
Samoura is set to replace Jerome Valcke, who was fired by FIFA and banned from soccer for 12 years over a ticketing and TV rights scandal as well as expenses abuses. Blatter was also forced out of the presidency in disgrace over financial misconduct and is now serving a six-year ban imposed by the organization's independent judiciary.
But in an expected move nike air vapormax 2018 , Infantino effectively seized control of the disciplinary organs put in place by Blatter. The congress handed over power to the ruling council, which is headed by Infantino, to dismiss ethics judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, investigator Cornel Borbely and audit and compliance head Domenico Scala. The three men would not comment on the changes.
"It is the old model www.vapormaxaustralia.com ," FIFA anti-corruption adviser Mark Pieth said. "We desperately want to go beyond that now."
Infantino defended the move, insisting it was just to provide "flexibility" for the council for the next year "to dismiss and appoint members if the council feels it is needed."
