Four Star Daily: Gulati tackles reform while Warner faces fraud charges

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Sunil Gulati has begun talking about what he hopes to accomplish on the FIFA Executive Committee in the wake of fraud charges being levied at CONCACAF higher-ups. Also, Villarreal in U-20 camp and LA Blues match rescheduled.

Morning links go well with a medium roast, extra bold coffee

  • So last week, when CONCACAF members voted US Soccer's Sunil Gulati to a FIFA Executive Committee seat over Mexico's Justino Compean, they also discussed allegations of fraud against Jack Warner and Chuck Blazer. One can read the integrity report summary here, and it's already led to the resignation of Warner from Trinadad and Tobago's national security minister. Warner is implicated as having committed fraud, and then some more fraud, and then even more fraud.
  • Gulati's path, however, is a more positive one. With this fraud charges on everyone's mind, he's giving interviews saying his ready to tackle the challenges of reform and that he'd be willing to disclose his FIFA pay. Gulati's narrow victory, it should be mentioned, was achieved entirely from support of countries where English is the primary language. The English/Spanish divide in CONCACAF, it's a real thing.
  • In Galaxy and US U-20 news, Oscar Sorto and Jose Villarreal were called into U-20 camp which is taking place at The Home Depot Center this week. Villarreal's status for the away match against Real Salt Lake will be determined at the end of the week.
  • The reserve match against the LA Blues, which was postponed due to travel, has been rescheduled. It will now take place Tuesday the seventh of May with kickoff scheduled from 7:00. The match will take place on US Soccer field no. 1, ending some speculation that the match would take place inside the soccer stadium. Admission and parking will be free.
