Another day, another investigation into goings on at world football's governing body.
Turns out FIFA officials aren't good eggs.. who knew?! Earlier this morning, Swiss police raided FIFA's headquarters in Zurich as part of an ongoing investigation into some dodgy World Cup bid$. The Swiss aren't alone in their attack on FIFA as the U.S are also looking to indict 14 FIFA officials for charges of 'deep rooted' corruption.
Among the 14 who got nabbed is Jack Warner, a man who somehow ended up with funds donated to the 2010 Haiti earthquake in his bank account...sounds like a great guy.
A certain Mr Blatter managed to avoid getting brought in by Old Bill and he will go ahead with the FIFA elections later this week as if nothing has happened, classic.
With FIFA looking as shell-shocked as Brendan Rodgers after a 6-1 thrashing to Peter Crouch and co, the internet went into overdrive.
Here's some of the best reaction to the
Empire FIFA getting their comeuppance.
1. Sepp Blatter looks happy...
