Warner warns of new allegations against Blatter

Port Of Spain: Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner promised damaging revelations about FIFA President Sepp Blatter`s electioneering, in a letter to a local newspaper.

Warner, Trinidad and Tobago`s Minister of Works, quit his post on the FIFA Executive Committee and as head of the Americas football confederation CONCACAF June 10 amid a bribery scandal ahead of the FIFA presidential election and the expulsion of another FIFA vice president, Mohamed Bin Hammam.

Warner alleged, however, in a letter to the Trinidad Guardian, that Blatter used him and Bin Hammam to offer similar "gifts" while running for the post in 1998 and 2002.

"We took (Blatter) on a worldwide crusade begging for support for him and he won," Warner wrote.

"That was the first time I met the present deputy chairman of FIFA Ethics Committee, Petrus Damaseb, at the time the president of the Namibia Football Association.”

"I will tell the world what gift Bin Hammam gave to him then, which was not a bribe then as he has ruled today."

Warner blamed FIFA for "leaking" a video that was taken during Bin Hammam`s controversial visit to meet Caribbean Football Union (CFU) officials.
