Latin America hails FIFA indictments that hit long-serving soccer bosses |

FIFA1A sprawling U.S. criminal probe into the “World Cup of fraud” within global soccer touched hard on Latin America and the Caribbean and made clear that many disgusted fans were hungering for a housecleaning.

Hardly anyone came to the defense of the busted soccer federation bosses, who came from Argentina, Brazil, the Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay and Venezuela.

And some notable soccer figures were ecstatic.

“Enough of this lying to people,” Diego Maradona, the retired Argentine soccer legend, told Radio La Red. “They have treated me like I am crazy and today the FBI revealed the truth.”

“Today soccer won and the corruption of FIFA lost,” Maradona said, referring to the body that governs world soccer, the International Federation of Association Football, by its French initials. via |
