Shaka Hislop, former Trinidad and Tobago football team goalkeeper, stated that he’s keen to see a resolution in the recent controversies involving CONCACAF and the parent global football body FIFA, regarding bribery accusations against CONCACAF head and FIFA vice-president Austin Jack Warner.
Suspended FIFA vice-president Jack Warner yesterday failed to deliver on his promise of Blatter bombshells—the e-mail exchange between himself and FIFA president Sepp Blatter—which he said would clear him of the allegations of facilitating a cash-for-votes bribery scandal.
Suspended FIFA vice president Jack Warner told journalists in Zurich that he blames the President of FIFA, the world football governing body, for the allegations made against him: “At the end of the day, Blatter has to be stopped.”

FIFA vice-president and CONCACAF president Austin Jack Warner has been a member of the FIFA Executive Committee since 1983, and CONCACAF president since 1990.
