German Football League President Warns of FIFA Boycott

The president of German Football, Reinhard Rauball, has warned that countries under UEFA may quit FIFA if all the findings of the corruption allegations are not tabled. The committee which was headed by attorney Michael Garcia released the report clearing Qatar, Russia, Portugal and Spain of any wrong doing in the bidding process.

Rauball joins the Football Association chairman, Greg Dyke and Former FA chairman David Bernstein in condemning the report. Dyke termed the 430 page report pointless and a joke. The report was compiled by German judge, Hans-Joachim Eckert. The judge used the two year findings by Garcia led committee to put together the report. However, four hours after the release of the report, Garcia issued a statement questioning the report.

The German football boss observed that the report showed a breakdown in communication and something that could shake the foundations of the world football governing body. Rauball said that that Garcia’s bill of indictment should be published together with the decision of his committee so as to make everything clear about the report.

The Football boss also said that all the areas that were not covered in the report should also be published with reasons why they were overlooked. According to Rauball, if the corruption report is not fully published, then nations under UEFA umbrella will have to review their stand on FIFA.
