Suspended Franz Beckenbauer Hits Back, Will Cooperate With FIFA Corruption Inquiry
Published June 16, 2014
NOTHING TO HIDE: The AFP reported in an interview with German newspaper Bild last week, Beckenbauer said that "he had nothing to hide, but complained that Garcia had refused to pose his questions in a language he understood." He said, "I was ready to answer all pertinent questions, but they sent them to me in a legal English that I could not understand in such a complex case." According to British media reports, quoting thousands of emails linked to the case, Beckenbauer "went to Qatar as a guest" of former FIFA VP Mohamed bin Hammam before the '10 vote and met the state's emir. They added that "he returned after the vote" (AFP, 6/15).
