Jack Warner Sues TTFA

Jack Warner, the former president of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) and vice-president of Fifa, has sued the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) over unpaid loans.

The Trinidad & Tobago Guardian newspaper has reported that Warner has sued the body to the tune of almost TT$16m (€2.1m/$2.4m). The report added that Warner’s lawsuit states that the TTFA has acknowledged the loans “several times” but is yet to repay them.

The newspaper obtained court filings in which Warner, who is from Trinidad and Tobago, claims to have loaned the body TT$15,761,003 over the course of 15 years. The loans are said to relate to the TTFA’s expenses during a period that covered the national team’s successful qualification for the 2006 Fifa World Cup.
