The FIFA scandal just keeps taking twist after twist after twist.
The latest revelation in the seemingly never-ending saga surrounding the ethics of football’s governing body involves the head of the Chilean FA Sergio Jadue, who has reportedly resigned his post in his home country to become an FBI informant.
The bizarre and unexpected turn of events came about after Jadue was served with legal papers on Friday that forced him to hand over Chilean FA paperwork to the local authorities investigating financial misappropriation at the country’s association.
And just a few hours later the 36-year-old announced he would take a month’s leave for ‘medical reasons’ but on Tuesday night he was pictured boarding a flight to New York, where it is understood by Chilean newspaper El Mercurio that he intends to become a whistleblower for American authorities.
Chuck Blazer, former chief of North American confederation CONCACAF, has previously turned into an informant for the FBI to save himself from a potential lengthy prison spell, in a move that incriminated many existing FIFA executives.
It was just last week that suspended FIFA president Sepp Blatter was hospitalised after suffering a ‘small emotional breakdown’. Sergio Jadue’s latest career move probably won’t be too good for his health.
