FA Chairman Greg Dyke has today claimed that “bungs are rife” in world football as well as in previous World Cup application processes.
Mr Dyke questioned whether any recent World Cup had been won without the aid of bribing officials. This comes after German Football Federation president Wolfgang Niersbach resigned in wake of allegations that payments were made to officials during the application process for Germany’s 2006 World Cup.
Germany defeated several nations to host the competition, including England and 2010 hosts South Africa.
Dyke claimed: “You begin to be convinced almost no World Cups have been allocated without a pile of bungs,”
