Leech in Brussels today to urge FIFA reform


Liberal Democrat Sports Spokesperson and Manchester MP John Leech is in Brussels today as part of an all-party delegation from the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee to urge FIFA to reform.

And yesterday, he quizzed Culture Secretary Sajid Javid on the same subject, when John called the running of FIFA “dodgy”.

John said today, “I am in Brussels today to do what I can to support reform of FIFA. I have already expressed publically the Lib Dem view that the 2018 and 2022 world cup bidding process needs to be re-run, and I hope to stiffen the resolve of European footballing governing bodies to get rid of Sepp Blatter. He is part of the problem not part of the solution.”
