FIFA's Worawi plans to sue
Bangkok - FIFA executive committee member Worawi Makudi says he will file charges against former English Football Association chief David Triesman for making bribery accusations.
Worawi, who is also head of the Football Association of Thailand, has denied Triesman's accusations that he demanded the television rights to a proposed Thailand-England friendly in exchange for supporting England's bid to host the 2018 Soccer World Cup.
Worawi told reporters on Monday that "the accusations are not true and groundless", saying he had "to speak out because my reputation has been tarnished and it defames my family."
The Thai administrator said he would file charges against Triesman in a British court, but he gave no other details.
