2012-03-29 09:04
Johannesburg - FIFA will be launching an investigation into claims of football trafficking, head of security Chris Eaton revealed on Thursday morning.

FIFA-listed agent Robert N'Kuimy was filmed agreeing to sell 14-year-old footballers, with the evidence having since been passed on to world football's governing body, who are set to look into the matter.

"We have been investigating these matters," he told Sky Sports.

"The issue about them being abandoned in some countries is also well known.

"This general matter of player trafficking is one of serious interest to FIFA."
