Bin Hammam will not follow Warner's example and resign from FIFA

FIFA member Mohamed Bin Hammam is under investigation over allegations of corruption but will not resign like Jack Warner in order to escape the outcome of the investigation. Bin Hammam and Warner were both suspended by FIFA's ethics committee last month pending a full inquiry into claims they offered or paid bribes totalling around US$1million to the 25 members of the Caribbean Football Union.

A friend of the Qatari told Press Association Sport: "He is adamant that he is going to fight these charges and he is comfortable with the situation."

Bin Hammam believes that his position will be backed up by fellow FIFA members Worawi Makudi, from Thailand, and Manilal Fernando, from Sri Lanka, as they accompanied him on the trip to Trinidad on May 10 and 11 when it is alleged the bribes were paid.
