You will recall the FIFA scandal – as if it was news that international football had a dark side involving backroom deals and bags of cash. For some reason the US government was involved in the investigations and arrests of officials governing a sport barely noticed in the US, with their home base in Zurich.
Today, a new Secretary General is selected to govern FIFA:
FIFA broke new ground by appointing a Senegalese United Nations official as its first female and first non-European secretary general on Friday.
Fatma Samoura has no experience working in sports…
No experience in sports.
But Samoura, who speaks French, English, Spanish, and Italian, appears to have no experience dealing with commercial deals and broadcasters — a key part of the job as FIFA's top administrator.
No experience in commercial transactions.
There is more to this story than equal employment laws on steroids.
Was this the plan all along? Is this why the arrests were made in the first place?
Perhaps international governing bodies are gradually going to be moved under UN auspices?
Is it as simple as FIFA making a hire that buys cover? Someone with no business experience such that the money skimming can continue under the shield provided by political correctness?
What is it? Any ideas?
