A lawyer for one of the indicted FA officials, said the was surprised at the charges levelled against his client given what was shown in the # Number12 documentary.

"It is difficult to explain how the police arrived at such charges when the documentary evidence they are basing their charge on did not indicate such offences.

"Maybe, just maybe, they have more evidence than what we have been made to believe and we await their further action. While my client is ready to cooperate with the police in their investigation, I will resist any attempt to hang around his neck an offence he did not commit," the lawyer told the Graphic Sports.

“How can alleged bribery suddenly change to money laundering and racketeering?
