Miguel Maduro, a former head of FIFA's independent governance and review committee, also told a British parliamentary hearing that FIFA's leadership tried to persuade him not to block Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko from being re-elected to its top committee.
It was also revealed at the select committee hearing that Federation Internationale de Football Association had refused to allow sacked chief investigator Cornel Borbely to appear before parliament alongside Maduro, citing confidentiality clauses in his contract. "He would transit to me sometimes those decisions were not well accepted but in that case there was an attempt to influence that decision".
Maduro says Infantino "was not comfortable" with ruling against Mutko and warned about it impacting the World Cup.
Maduro told British legislators "there was an attempt to influence that decision" on Mutko by Infantino, the president of Federation Internationale de Football Association. "He was very clear about that". "More than that, she said we needed to find a solution to declare Mr. Mutko eligible because otherwise the presidency itself would be in question, the World Cup would be a disaster, that was her view, and the continued presidency of Mr. Infantino would also be in question".
