    That's a good decision given that the newly appointed head of CONMEBOL, Alejandro Dominguez, is the latest in a long line of corrupt Paraguayan football officials that includes Leoz and Napout, both currently under detention/trial in the USA. Dominguez was the protege of both, as well as of the current president of Paraguay, Horacio Cartes, himself a former football empresario who worked closely with both Leoz and Napout. It is incredible that Dominguez was elected unanimously to the post last week. Latin American football remains mired in corruption, with the only pressure for change coming from outside the region.

    Isn't this lovely?

    One bunch of corrupt football twats pointing the finger at a similar bunch of twats!

    Shut the lot down and use the money to start afresh with the successor run by women!

    And I'm not joking.
