Seems like Fifa's new bod at the top, Gianni Infantino, is already attempting to fill his boots but with the spotlight firmly on this dodgy organisation after the putrid stench of Sepptic Splater's "reign", they are looking to make it legit and dispense with the traditional trousering of big, brown envelopes.
As mentioned in passing recently, his brain child is to expand the World Cup from 32 teams to 48 teams all the while insisting it's based purely on "sporting merit". He guffs on:
"It's a football decision. Every format has advantages in financial terms. We were in a comfortable situation to take a decision based on sporting merit.
This is a historic decision which marks the entrance of the World Cup into the 21st Century."
That being the case, why is he fumbling around trying to explain how it's a "football decision"? He has already admitted "much of the detail has yet to be worked out" so that hardly gives confidence to his claims, does it?
