Samoura says FIFA is in a better place….

FIFA general-secretary Fatma Samoura spoke this first morning of the three-day Soccerex conference in Manchester. Amongst other things, Samoura explained FIFA are disbanding their anti-racism taskforce because “it had a very specific mandate which it has fully fulfilled” She said her presence – as a black female – at FIFA was proof the organisation was committed to inclusivity and equality and that stricter punishments can be anticipated: “Not only racism but any kind of discrimination, including violation of human rights.” Samoura also said the organisation was in a much better place than it was a year ago.
