"FIFA's claim that it remains neutral in matters of politics (within the sport) is demonstrated to be patently false", said Justice Carol Gobin. Her ruling could seriously damage FIFA’s governance model and authority.
On 24 September it seemed that Fifa had won by knockout over the rebellious Trinidad & Tobago FA. 24 hours later the tables were turned.
A court ruling in Trinidad & Tobago could set a dangerous precedent for Gianni Infantino's organisation. And it shows that FIFA, after all, is not above the law.
Hardly anyone batted an eyebrow when Fifa announced that a “normalisation committee” had been set up in Trinidad & Tobago. But the key question is: Could this be nothing but an act of revenge from Gianni Infantino?
