Fifa crisis: Lord Triesman's 2018 World Cup bid claims rejected

Four members of Fifa's executive committee have been cleared after accusations of wrongdoing from the head of England's unsuccessful 2018 World Cup bid.

Lord Triesman, who is also a former chairman of the FA, claimed Jack Warner, Nicolas Leoz, Ricardo Teixeira and Worawi Makudi had engaged in "improper and unethical" conduct.

The FA carried out its own probe into the claims and the findings were submitted to world football's governing body during the week.

Yesterday, Fifa general secretary Jerome Valcke said an independent report commissioned by the FA did not back up the allegations.

"I hope Fifa will agree to make it public because all the people here, especially Mr Teixeira and Mr Makudi, are completely clean of all the allegations made by Lord Triesman a few weeks ago," Mr Valcke said.
