LONDON---Five World Cup sponsors
have written to FIFA s executive com-
mittee demanding "independent over-
sight" of the reform process in their
latest intervention that highlights
concerns about their links to soccer s
scandal-battered governing body.
Sponsors were originally promised
places on the FIFA reform committee.
But instead of being invited into meet-
ings discussing the overhaul of the
organization, they have been offered
seats only on an advisory board which
is yet to be appointed.
The sponsors letter was sent from
Adidas, McDonald s, Coca-Cola, Visa,
and Budweiser brewer AB InBev to
FIFA s ruling body ahead of meetings
this week when a final slate of reform
proposals will be discussed.
The reform panel was established
following the indictment of soccer offi-
cials by American authorities for bribery
but the sponsors appear to have reser-
vations about its independence.
"We want to stress that we are call-
ing on you to embrace change, imple-
ment reforms, endorse a long-term
independent oversight approach and
initiate the cultural change because we
all want to see football thrive," the
sponsors wrote to the FIFA executive
committee in a letter seen by The Asso-
The sponsors say "strengthening
FIFA s governance" is "just one step
toward creating a credible future" of
an organization currently under the
temporary leadership of Issa Hayatou
while Sepp Blatter is suspended.
"We want to emphasize to you the
values and characteristics that we
believe should be incorporated through
the reforms," the sponsors wrote.
"Transparency, accountability, respect
for human rights, integrity, leadership,
and gender equality are crucial to FIFA s
future. Reforms can set the proper
framework for these characteristics,
but a cultural change is needed."
Former International Olympic Com-
mittee official Francois Carrard accepted
FIFA s invitation in August to lead a
team that was to include two people
picked by the sponsors to join 12 more
nominated by FIFA s six continental
That promise of two seats then
became a pledge to give sponsors input
in a five-member advisory board Car-
rard said he would choose to review
his panel s work.

PARIS---Facing increasing pres-
sure in the wake of a blackmail
scandal tarnishing his name,
France striker Karim Benzema has
finally decided to speak out.
French Prime Minister Manuel
Valls joined in the criticism of Ben-
zema yesterday, saying he "has no
place" on the national team, days
after Mathieu Valbuena gave a hard-
hitting interview in which he spoke
of feeling betrayed by his France
Benzema will respond in an inter-
view to be aired on French national
news today, broadcaster TF1 said.
Benzema is one of France s key
players as it gets ready to host the
2016 European Championship, but
the Real Madrid forward faces
charges of conspiracy to blackmail
relating to an extortion scam over
a sex tape. He is suspected of having
played an active role in pressuring
Valbuena in a case that continues
to both damage Benzema s repu-
tation and cast severe doubt on his
"A great athlete should be exem-
plary," Valls told French radio Europe
1 yesterday. "If he is not, he has no
place within the France team."
Last Friday, Valbuena gave an
interview to newspaper Le Monde,
in which he spoke at length about
Benzema s attempts to pressure
"There comes a time when you
can t defend the indefensible. I
wouldn t even do that to my worst
enemy," Valbuena told Le Monde.
"I can only feel very, very, very let
down and now realise that my rela-
tionship with Karim wasn t as sin-
cere as he may claim."
The investigation, centering on
wiretap evidence, started when Val-
buena took legal action after being
contacted by a man claiming to
possess an incriminating sex tape.
In a case that could drag on for
months, Benzema s involvement
has not yet been fully determined.
But investigators who charged him
in October believe he was
approached by a childhood friend
to act as an intermediary and con-
vince Valbuena to deal directly with
"If a minister was handed pre-
liminary charges, he would no
longer be part of the government,"
Benzema denies any wrongdoing
but his arguments were undermined
last week when Valbuena gave his
first interview. Hours later, the
French football federation joined
the case as plaintiff.
