Former Vice-President of the International football Federation (FIFA) Mohamed bin Hammam spoke about the money received from Germany after the country has got the right to host the 2006 world Cup. The word Hammam quotes ZDF.
“On my account was really credited 6.7 million euros. But I would like to understand why it was to bribe me for the fact that Germany received. The amount received on my account already after the decision on holding the world Cup,” he said.
In November of 2017 former Vice-President of FIFA Julio Grondona was accused of receiving a bribe. He allegedly received a million dollars for a vote in favor of Qatar at the election of the host country of the 2022 world Cup.
In 2015, Spiegel wrote that Germany allegedly bribed functionaries in the FIFA Executive Committee to obtain the right to host the 2006 FIFA world Cup. According to the magazine, who at that time was as head of Adidas, Robert Louis-Dreyfus was allegedly transferred to a special Fund for bribing employees of the organization 10.3 million CHF (6.7 million euros).
