FIFA promises match fixing won’t affect WC

FIFA’s anti-corruption tzar, Ralf Mutschke, has announced that FIFA will do everything within its power and reach to make sure that no match fixing attempts by illegal groups and syndicates will spoil the World Cup taking place in Brazil during the current year.

Ralf Mutschke, a former Interpol and police officer with over 30 years experience, has stated that the corruption issue in football is currently a global problem which affects all levels of the industry, including its most important event, the World Cup.

Mutschke told the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, “We must assume that organised crime gangs will also try to fix matches at the World Cup. But FIFA will be taking all the necessary measures to ensure that everything possible will be made to salvage the situation, if match-fixing is proven”.
