Video shows Warner talking FIFA cash gifts

7:14 am on 14 October 2011

A video showing former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner telling Caribbean officials how to deal with cash gifts from the Asian Football Confederation chief has been published by a British newspaper.

London's The Daily Telegraph posted footage of the May meeting of the Caribbean Football Union, which shows Warner advising delegates how to handle cash offered by Mohamed Bin Hammam ahead of his ill-fated FIFA election bid.

Bin Hammam was later banned for life amid claims Caribbean officials had been paid around $50,000 each at the meeting.

In the video, Warner can be heard telling CFU delegates that he had not been in favour of Bin Hammam offering money at the meeting but he didn't explicitly disapprove.
