FIFA to check Mutko’s possible involvement in doping scandal
If FIFA's suspicions about Mutko's involvement in the doping case confirm, the FIFA World Cup 2018 may take place in another country, the source says.
The FIFA Ethics Committee took interest in President of the Russian Football Union (RFU) Vitaly Mutko in connection with the doping scandal.
As reported by British Daily Mail, FIFA's investigative body has begun a preliminary investigation against the Head of the RFU and the Vice-Premier of the Russian Government for Sports, Tourism and Youth Policy.
According to the news agency, FIFA intends to verify Mutko's involvement in government agencies concealing the use of banned drugs by Russian athletes. Head of the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) independent commission Richard McLaren has earlier reported on this practice, which he said is the case in Russia, in his report.
The FIFA noted that if the suspicions about Mutko are confirmed, he will be dismissed from all football posts, and the FIFA World Cup 2018, to which Russia is preparing, may take place in another country. Let us recall that the calls for depriving Russia the right to host the global football championship increased on December 9 after the publication of McLaren's report, which refers to the existence of a system of state encouragement of doping use by Russian athletes.
