MIAMI - Former FIFA vice-president Jack
Warner, who quit football administration last month amid bribery
allegations, said he would consider returning to the game to
deal with "unfinished business."
Warner, who for 21 years was president of CONCACAF, the
body for North and Central America and the Caribbean, quit in
June after he had been suspended pending a FIFA investigation
into claims he helped facilitate bribes.
The allegations being probed by FIFA suggested Trinidadian
Warner acted on behalf of Qatari Mohamed Bin Hammam, who was a
candidate for president of FIFA.
Both Warner and bin Hammam have denied any wrongdoing and
FIFA said Warner's resignation meant they no longer had any
jurisdiction to investigate him.
In comments reported by the Trinidad Guardian on Tuesday,
Warner said he would consider a return to FIFA politics.
"I will not say no because you can never tell what the
future holds. There is some unfinished business which I will
have to finish in both FIFA and CONCACAF at the appropriate
time and who knows I may go back," he said.
Warner, who was on FIFA's executive since 1983 also headed
Trinidad's football federation in the past, said no one in his
country had his experience of the international body.
"The only expert on the FIFA in this country is me and in
the fullness of time I will tell this country what FIFA is and
what FIFA is not," he said.
FIFA's Ethics Committee will hold a hearing with Bin Hammam
into the allegations on July 22.
The body has interviewed a
number of members of the Caribbean Football Union regarding the
allegations that federations were given cash gifts by the
Qatari who was hoping to defeat Sepp Blatter and become the top
man in world football.
