FIFA: Gordon Flunked Integrity Check for CONCACAF President
FIFA says Gordon Derrick, the general secretary of the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association, has 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 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.
The last three CONCACAF presidents were ousted amid corruption allegations.
