Cape Town – The embattled former SAFA CEO, Leslie Sedibe, believes he has become the fall guy for the scandals surrounding the 2010 World Cup and Fifa, and has called on investigators to do a lifestyle audit, according to reports.

According to Eyewitness News he wants the audit to be done to prove his innocence.

On Monday Sedibe received a 5-year ban from any footballing related activities as well as a fine of over R300 000.

Sedibe claims the Fifa probe remains incomplete and unreliable, eNCA reported.

He was among several former South African officials banned in connection with unethical behaviour involving four Bafana Bafana friendlies played in the run-up to the 2010 World Cup.

The other officials are Lindile Kika, Steve Goddard and Adeel Carelse. 

At a press conference in Johannesburg, Sedibe gave his side of the story including producing a letter he says was sent to him by SAFA, asking him to destroy information related to alleged match-fixing.

He questioned why, despite repeated requests to SAFA, he was never allowed to access information he felt could be used in his defence. 

Sedibe will now take the matter to court in an effort to clear his name.
