    Transparency International cuts ties with Fifa

    A corruption watchdog that was advising Fifa after a series of bribery and corruption scandals, has cut its ties with world football's governing body.

    An official with Transparency International (TI) said two of its key recommendations had been ignored.

    TI said Fifa paying an expert to oversee major reforms to how it is run would jeopardise his independence.

    The expert, Mark Pieth, said he would not re-examine old scandals, another recommendation of TI.

    The move is being viewed by many as a blow to the credibility of Fifa's reform process, which has been led by its President Sepp Blatter, says BBC sports news correspondent Alex Capstick.

    Fifa has declined to comment on TI's move.

    Not very surprising. Only a matter of time as to when national federations start dropping FIFA.
