FIFA members Jack Warner and Mohamed Bin Hammam have reacted angrily to their suspension from football's world governing body.

Warner, who's president of the CONCACAF confederation and Bin Hammam, president of the Asian confederation, have protested their innocence on social media sites after FIFA's ethics committee found they had a case to answer.

Bin Hammam has also withdrawn from the FIFA presidential race, leaving Sepp Blatter unopposed.

The pair were allegedly involved in a cash for votes scam to help Qatar host the 2022 world cup.

Warner, has promised to unleash a tsunami of revelations and published what he said was an email from FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke appearing to cast doubt on Bin Hammam's motives for standing against Blatter in the first place.
