The newly elected FIFA President Gianni Infantino is now embroiled in a fresh scandal, barely six months into his reign at FIFA. Infantino is accused of destroying recordings of a Fifa council meeting in Mexico and reports in some quarters indicate that FIFA is considering a 90 day suspension.

A FIFA spokesman however denied that FIFA has begun investigative proceedings against Infantino; “We are not in a position to indicate if we have or have not begun preliminary investigatory proceedings against an individual. We would however like to point out that there are no formal proceedings going on against Mr Infantino.”

FIFA’s current scandal revolve around reports that Infantino had planed to fire Domenico Scala, the head of audit in FIFA. The congress in Mexico city for which recording was destroyed was allegedly passed a resolution to allow the FIFA council to fire members of the Independent watchdog.

In simple terms, the FIFA council headed by Infantino was given the power to fire Scala and all the other members of the FIFA Independent watchdog.
