UEFA passing the book on 'mystery backers'?

The mystery of who is actually behind London based MSI continues to be the subject of intense speculation.

Today UEFA has voiced its concerns about the need for complete transparency. UEFA director of communications William Gaillard told the Daily Telegraph. "The UK Government has a responsibility to start investigating."

Shouldn't it be UEFA who deals with this thorny issue, as opposed to the government?

There has been talk that MSI are being investigated in Brazil for money laundering, that of course would be a government issue, if it happened within the UK.

However, in July FIFA suspended the Greek Hellenic Football Federation, for allowing political involvement in its running of the sport. It seems political involvement is ok when it suits FIFA/UEFA...

JR.
