Thai football boss to meet Fifa over fixing claims
BANGKOK (AP) - Thailand's football chief ways he will fly to Malaysia to meet Fifa and Interpol officials on Thursday over allegations of match fixing during last year's Thai FA Cup final.
Football Association of Thailand (FAT) president Worawi Makudi said the Malaysia-based Asian Football Confederation last week informed him of possible irregularities surrounding November's final between Buriram FC and Royal Thai Army after Japanese referee Yoshida Toshimitsu claimed he was offered bribes to favour of one of the two teams.
Mr Worawi met with the FAT executive board for several hours on Tuesday in Bangkok, but said he would wait for further investigations before commenting further on the allegations.
"We have no evidence if the two clubs are guilty or not," he said. "My comments at this point will not do any good for the two teams."
