After the world, Cillian Sheridan and Roy Keane have had their say on the controversy surrounding corruption in FIFA and the €5 million payment to FAI in 2010. But now, the Taoiseach of Ireland has weighed in on the situation.
Kenny thinks that the payment is extraordinary and has called on the FAI and John Delaney to provide some transparency to the situation. Despite all the questions now surrounding him, Kenny maintains that Delaney's position as the chief executive of the FAI is still tenable.
The Taoiseach expects a full statment from Delaney and the FAI some time this afternoon, and one that will shed some light on the matter in a transparent and accountable way.
Minister for Sport Paschal Donohoe echoed the Taoiseach's calls for transparency. Donohue maintained that he had no knowledge of the payment until it became public knowledge last week, and is certain that his predecessors wouldn't have been aware of it either.
Paschal Donohue is concerned that €5 million is a large sum of money and stressed that it's details on how it was used and recorded in the FAI's accounts need to be made public.
The Taoiseach and Minister for Sport are unlikely to be the last to comment on the situation, but for now we await John Delaney's updated statement on the situation.
