Sydney: The only Australian member of the FIFA ethics committee says football's world governing body urgently needs "complete structural" reform.
Veteran football broadcaster Les Murray, one of 13 members of the committee, attended Sunday's hearing at which executive committee members Mohamed bin Hammam and Jack Warner were provisionally suspended amid bribery allegations.
"I think the reform has to be very deep ... there probably has to be complete structural and also constitutional reform," Murray was quoted as saying in Tuesday's Sydney Morning Herald. "The structure of the organization at the moment is too political. Decisions are based on political motives, and that's not healthy for any organization. That simply has to change."
