Another one bites the dust, sort of.

In their continued attempt to crackdown on curroption, FIFA has decided to suspend Brazilian soccer president Marco Polo del Nero for 90 days from any soccer activity amid reports he is under an ethics investigation.

He has been facing charges of racketeering and money laundering since 2015, which might lead to him finally going to trial for his alleged crimes in the United States.

“As many Brazilians that love soccer, my hope is that he is banned for good,” said Federal Senator and former Brazilian national soccer team player.

“Del Nero has already had his crimes exposed along those of other crooks like Jose Maria Marin, who is in jail in the United States, and (former CBF president) Ricardo Teixeira who is still on the loose in Brazil. They all used CBF to get illegally rich.”

More to come.
