Sunday, August 28, 2011
ULRICHEN, Switzerland (AP) -- FIFA's president says he will present detailed anti-corruption reforms in October.
Sepp Blatter tells The Associated Press he will announce "a road map of where we go and when we go" after an Oct. 20-21 executive committee meeting in Zurich.
Blatter promised to clean up world soccer when he was re-elected in June.
Former election rival Mohamed bin Hammam and vice president Jack Warner are among four executive officials to recently lose their seats.
Several more survived unproven allegations concerning bribes, unethical favors and vote-trading deals.
Blatter says he's "very disappointed and very sad" that Caribbean soccer's reputation has been damaged by an election bribery scandal involving bin Hammam.
