Blatter discusses FIFA structural reforms

Madrid, June 5 (IANS/EFE) FIFA president Sepp Blatter said he had a highly “constructive meeting” with Domenico Scala, independent chairman of the FIFA Audit & Compliance Committee, to discuss structural reforms of the world soccer governing body, media reported on Friday.

“I had a good, constructive meeting with Scala to establish a framework for action and a timetable. I am pleased to take advice and guidance from Scala,” Blatter said.
