We have become used to money spoiling the game of football, but nothing could epitomise the extent to which money has corrupted football more than the FIFA election debacle. Allegations of bribery, vote-rigging and now a one-candidate election have defiled the image of the international football association.

Doesn’t that simply confirm that global business and the filthy lucre that it provides to the management and associations of football has indelibly stained the character of football?
