Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini claims Gianni Infantino “won the FIFA election because he bought more votes than the Sheikh.”
The patron is not new to such outlandish statements and made the comments while speaking to Radio Bruno.
“The system does not change and the current number one of FIFA, the chief of the bureaucrats Infantino, has been part of it for a long time.
“If they elected him it must be because he bought more votes than the Sheikh. I hope they suspend me for having said that. It would be an honour for me.”
Zamparini is currently in a legal battle after the TAS sporting arbitration tribunal ruled he had to pay €15m to Paulo Dybala’s agent Mascardi.
“This week I am taking TAS to court via the criminal justice system. They are unscrupulous conmen who behave abominably.
“They extort money, millions and millions, then split the proceeds.”
