Jack: I may return to FIFA

(Trinidad Guardian) Former vice president of FIFA, Jack Warner, says he has unfinished business with the world football governing body and he may return in due course. Warner, who is also the Works Minister of T&T, made the comment during an interview after a visit to a dredging exercise in Sea Lots, Port-of-Spain, on Monday.

Asked if he considered FIFA a closed chapter, Warner said: “I will not say no because you can never tell what the future holds. “There are some unfinished business which I will have to finish in both FIFA and CONCACAF at the appropriate time and who knows I may go back.”

He was responding to a newspaper story which claimed he was warned by CONCACAF general secretary about certain matters relating to the infamous CONCACAF meeting at the Hyatt Regency in T&T several months ago. Allegations of bribery were subsequently made against Warner and others following that meeting. He said he was in FIFA for 30 years “and the only expert on the FIFA in this country is me and in the fullness of time I will tell this country what FIFA is and what FIFA is not.” He said citizens were free to say what they wanted about FIFA at this time. “Let them talk,” Warner added.
