Muinjo Sticks Up for Blatter … Insists Fifa Is in Good Health

The Namibia Football Association (NFA) President John Muinjo has leapt to the defence of FIFA President Sepp Blatter, saying Blatter’s unsung work in developing the game of football in various parts of the world, particularly Africa, is often overshadowed by “the ruthless pen” of the British media.

Muinjo has joined several African football bosses in condemning recent comments made by former chairman of the English Football Association, David Triesman, who was reported in the British media accusing FIFA’s hierarchy of corruption and likening the world’s football governing body to a “mafia family”.

In an interview with New Era Sports yesterday, the Namibian football supremo minced no words and said it was time for the British media to swallow its pride and stop looking for scapegoats in their failed bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
