England Prime Minister Cameron 'not impressed' by FIFA governance

The Prime Minister of England, David Cameron, has voiced his concern at the recent scandals enveloping football's world governing body, FIFA.

The recent re-election of unopposed FIFA president Sepp Blatter was one of the events which has highlighted the uncertainty surrounding the governance of the world game, attracting criticism from many.

Now England PM Cameron has spoken out, saying he is concerned about the current bribery allegations that FIFA has found themselves up against.

"Personally, I have seen football governance at an international level and I wasn't that impressed by what I saw," he said at Prime Minister's questions.

"What I would say is this: Fifa's reputation is now at an all-time low and obviously the election with just one candidate was something of a farce but it has to become more transparent and more accountable.

"They have got to prove that they are actually capable of doing the job that they are meant to."

Cameron did support the English Football Association, who recently made the decision to boycott the FIFA election.

"Ultimately change has got to come from within football and I am sure the FA will want to play a very major role in helping to bring that about," he added.
