Ponga is a renowned football commentator, analyst and sports media consultant. He will join us to discuss and the unexpected resignation of FIFA president Sepp Blatter, who has been at the helm of the world football governing body since 1998. FIFA came into the spotlight the previous week after seven of its top officials were arrested for corrupt practices which have characterized the organization’s operations and fraudulent procedures in the awarding of which nations host the prestigious World Cup.
Did the voting patterns at the just ended FIFA council which gave Blatter a fifth term reflect how the football federations around the world are divided? Ponga stated that; “This should be the first step in the wholesale cleaning of football at all levels to give the game leadership that is honest, has integrity and that puts football first, above personal gain.” What is the way forward for FIFA after Blatter? Join us for an exciting and informative show.
