Football’s scandal-hit world governing body FIFA convened the first meeting of a new reform committee on Wednesday in Berne.
UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino is one of the twelve-person committee, that is chaired by Swiss lawyer Francois Carrard and charged with drawing up far-reaching reforms in the wake of a major corruption scandal.
Four days after being re-elected for a fifth term in May, embattled FIFA president Sepp Blatter announced he would stand down following the arrest of several top ranking Fifa officials on corruption charges.
