Do you remember those days that Germans called us lazy and cheaters?
The German Football Federation confronts a new scandal that threats their football. A few hours ago it became known that the German Football Federation is been accused that in 2000 had bribed members of FIFA in its effort to land the rights to host the 2006 World Cup, which eventually was hosted in Germany!!! It is estimated that the German Football Federation spent about 10.3 million dollars!
Indeed the famous former footballer of Germany and current member of German football Franz Beckenbauer was informed for this amount and where it was going to be given. The current head of German Football Federation, Wolfgang Niersbach was also informed about this. Internal documents of FIFA show that the bribes had been made with the help of global football organizing body FIFA to facilitate the payment.
Having the cover of FIFA, the Germans found the access to bribe members that would vote in favour of Germany! Recall that the Germany had won the World Cup of 2006 with only one vote difference from South Africa. It has already launched an investigation into alleged bribes. The disclosure to a very large extent was done by the German magazine Spiegel that uncloaks the football German factors. Spiegel itself mentions that these bribes will cause a new crisis in Germany, this time in football. So the Germans, after the submarine scandal, after the SIEMENS scandal, after the VW scandal, has another scandal that shocks and is about football. When nobody thought they would bribe they did! The Germans know…
Last but not least, the German newspaper Die Zeit, admits that Germany sent ships full of guns in Arabia, so it would vote Germany for the 2006 World cup.
