GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (CMC) — FIFA boss Sepp Blatter has praised CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb for taking bold steps to reform the confederation, and says the body is now poised to become a potent force in world football.

Speaking  in the Cayman Islands at the recent inaugural CONCACAF Sports Summit, Blatter said Webb had played a pivotal role in reshaping a confederation in need of fresh leadership.

“I have to congratulate this President and CONCACAF, and the national associations of CONCACAF for what they have done in 2012 because they have changed the leadership and it was time to change the leadership,” Blatter told journalists.

“Where I can congratulate you … is with the Integrity Committee you have put together and this Integrity Committee Report on transparency which has been shown to the whole world. This is a wonderful achievement. It is open-minded and represents total transparency.”

Webb was last year elected unopposed to the powerful position of CONCACAF president, in the wake of the cash-for-votes scandal which rocked the Caribbean in 2011.
