Former FIFA VP Jack Warner Claims He Received Grant To Build Center In Trinidad

The disgraced former FIFA VP Jack Warner claims that "he was personally given the money to build" a £4M ($6.2M) center of excellence in Trinidad "in return for helping Sepp Blatter's election as president of the sport's world governing body," according to the PA. Warner "has produced letters from Blatter's predecessor, João Havelange," apparently showing the $6M FIFA "loan for the centre, built on land owned by Warner, had been converted into a grant" (PA, 4/26).
