FIFA put Gonsalves and Derrick on Notice

This has been confirmed by Derrick who said no dates have been given and that the communiqué simply reads that they would be contacted for further interview.

The GS, however, refused to go into details.

Reports indicate that the letter, which was received by fax last Friday, also named officials from Montserrat, Anguilla and Dominica who have also been put on notice of the pending summons after they were all left out of an original list of officials that were asked to appear before the investigative team over a month ago.

The original list of 16 officials from various CFU countries are set to travel to Zurich next week where they are expected to meet with the FIFA Ethics Committee and could face possible suspensions if found guilty.

The notice, some may say ironically, came just two days after Derrick had officially announced he had accepted a nomination to challenge three others for the presidency position within the CFU.

No dates were given by the team set up to investigate allegations that Caribbean football officials had accepted US $40,000 in cash from suspended Asian football boss Bin Hammam in exchange for their votes at the FIFA presidency elections which was slated for June 1 in Zurich.

Bin Hammam’s latest attempt to regain both his pride and his standing in world football failed after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) rejected his bid to be reinstated as head of Asian football over the weekend.

OBSERVER Sports tried to make contact with Gonsalves but without avail.

The duo, though, is expected to make a joint statement within the next 24 hours.
