FIFA ANTI-CORRUPTION PROBES: PIETH ADMITS FACING RESISTANCE
Chairman of FIFA'S Independent Governance Committee, Mark Pieth, who was given the job by of investigating corruption within world football's governing body says he is "facing some resistance".
The IGC which was set up in 2011 to look at corruption in football, produced a report in march 2012 that claimed past allegations of corruption within football's governing body had been "insufficiently investigated
FIFA President Sepp Blatter responded to that report by introducing a new Two-Chamber Ethics Committee, but Pieth believes more needs to be done, despite the resistance encountered
He also warned football is in danger of becoming like boxing with multiple governing bodies "where you have four world champions in the end".
FIFA has faced a series of corruption claims in recent years.
