Maradona: 'Enough shady dealings' FIFA!

Diego Maradona admits he has enjoyed seeing the recent allegations made against FIFA.

A total of 14 men involved with world football's governing body have been arrested on bribery and corruption charges which suggests to Argentine legend Maradona that now is the time to clean up the world game.

Maradona has long been against FIFA president Sepp Blatter and is calling for the head of the Swiss administrator at Friday's presidential election in Zurich.

"They called me mad, but thankfully today the truth is out and I am enjoying it," Maradona told Argentine radio station La Red.

"They hate soccer. They hate transparency. Enough shady dealings. Enough lying to the people.

"We're going to remove all the old-timers, we'll have to see if Blatter wins this time. With (Prince) Ali (Blatter's presidential rival), the good will remain and the bad I will personally kick you know where."
