Anti-corruption advisers challenge Fifa



Fifa's anti-corruption advisers have urged president Sepp Blatter's executive committee to resist attempts to dilute reforms of football's world governing body.

The advisory panel has published a slate of "fundamental" modernising steps Fifa should take by May 31.

The panel wants to "safeguard proper decision-making" at Fifa by allowing two independent outsiders to attend all committee meetings.

It proposes term limits for the Fifa president and board members, and suggests all committee members should be vetted for integrity by an independent panel at Fifa.

The panel wants public disclosure of "compensation and benefits" paid to Fifa officials.

The panel, led by Swiss law professor Mark Pieth, says changing the culture of Fifa is "far from completed" and identifies Uefa as a barrier to progress.
