Cameron told the House of Commons on Wednesday that it was ”something of a farce” that Sepp Blatter was re-elected as president unopposed last week.
Blatter’s only challenger, Mohamed bin Hammam, was suspended three days before the election along with fellow FIFA executive committee member Jack Warner on campaign bribery charges.
Cameron says ”FIFA’s reputation is now at an all-time low and obviously the election with just one candidate was something of a farce.”
Cameron wants FIFA to ”become more transparent and more accountable.”
