FILE – In this May 10, 2011 file picture Mohamed bin Hammam, chief of the Asian Football Confederation, talks to local media in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago. Accused of trying to bribe his way to world football’s top job, Mohamed bin Hammam returns to FIFA headquarters Friday July 22, 2011 for a hearing that could banish him from the sport. Bin Hammam will face a five-man ethics panel which is set to deliver verdicts Saturday on the latest and most serious corruption scandal in FIFA’s 107-year history. The Asian Football Confederation president was suspended seven weeks ago pending a full probe into allegations he arranged to pay Caribbean officials $40,000 cash bribes to back his failed election challenge against FIFA President Sepp Blatter.
