Caribbean chiefs want Blazer probe
The saga surrounding FIFA member Chuck Blazer continued on Tuesday, with the heads of 11 Caribbean associations filing an official complaint against the CONCACAF secretary general.
Blazer was embroiled in controversy last month after setting in motion the bribery and corruption investigation which led to the suspension of fellow FIFA members Jack Warner and Mohamed Bin Hammam, ultimately allowing Sepp Blatter to stand for a fourth term as president unopposed.
The complaints aimed at Blazer revolve around comments allegedly made by the American at a meeting in Zurich on May 31. Those making the accusations have written to FIFA's ethics committee asking for a full investigation into the remarks.
Blazer told Press Association Sport that he had "no concerns about this and everything will be answered properly to the ethics committee".
The letter of complaint says Blazer "violated the personal rights" of Captain Horace Burrell, the president of the Jamaican Football Federation after Blazer had blocked him becoming active vice-president of CONCACAF.
It continues that Blazer "discriminated against Capt Burrell and certain members of the CONCACAF through his contemptuous and denigratory words since all the persons who were singled out were of a specific race".
