CONCACAF presidential candidate Gordon Derrick disqualified - FIFA

Gordon Derrick 160412
FIFA has said that Gordon Derrick will not be allowed to run for CONCACAF president after failing an integrity check.

FIFA has announced that Gordon Derrick, the general secretary of the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association, failed an integrity check and won't be allowed to run for president of CONCACAF, the sport's regional governing body for North and Central America and the Caribbean.

Domenico Scala, chairman of FIFA's audit and compliance committee, said in a statement on Tuesday that Derrick had been disqualified, but added that "for privacy reasons, we are not in a position to go into further details."

CONCACAF's president is automatically a FIFA vice president and member of FIFA's ruling executive committee, which is being renamed the FIFA council.

The decision left Canadian Soccer Association president Victor Montagliani and Bermuda Football Association president Larry Mussenden as the only candidates.

Jack Warner of Trinidad and Tobago, CONCACAF's president from 1983-2011, was indicated by a U.S. grand jury in New York City last May on charges of racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy, wire fraud, money laundering conspiracy and money laundering. He is fighting extradition.

He was succeeded by Jeffrey Webb, who headed CONCACAF from 2012 until he was indicted last May. He pleaded guilty on Nov. 23 to racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy, and agreed to forfeit more than $6.7 million.

Alfredo Hawit of Honduras replaced Webb and was indicted in November. He pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of wire fraud conspiracy and one count each of racketeering conspiracy and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

CONCACAF said Luis Hernandez of Cuba and John Krishnadath were running for FIFA council member from the Caribbean, and Pedro Chaluja of Panama was running unopposed for council member for the Caribbean.

Sonia Bien-Aime of Turks and Caicos, elected as the Caribbean's member of the FIFA executive committee last July, is running for CONCACAF's female member of the new council against Joanne Salazar of Trinidad and Tobago.
