Carrard To Help Sanitise Corrupt FIFA

Francois Carrard, former director-general of the International Olympic Committee, has been confirmed as head of the revived reform committee being set up by FIFA in the wake of the latest corruption scandal.

Swiss lawyer Carrard has extensive experience of governance reform since he headed the IOC administration, under presidents Juan Antonio Samaranch and then Jacques Rogge, which had to deal with the fall-out from the Salt Lake City scandal. 

He will also be setting up his own personal advisory group in addition to the panel nominated by FIFA’s own confederations.

The 14 commission members include the Australian former IOC vice-president Kevan Gosper and Kuwaiti Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, a major powerbroker in the Olympic movement.
