With so much attention focused on Zurich this week, it’s been easy to forget that other things might have been happening in the wider world of football.

In Korea, the K-League has been rocked by allegations of match fixing after former player Jeong Jong-Kwan was found dead, with a suicide note expressing regret over his involvement in the scandal.

Faced with such a serious problem, the Korean FA called upon the most trustworthy and incorruptible group they knew of to handle the situation – FIFA.

KFA chief Cho Chung-Yun announced to the media:

“If necessary, FIFA will dispatch a team of inspectors to investigate situations. We will also rely on international cases to seek solutions to problems.”

Coincidentally, BigSoccer’s Bill Archer, who deserves a Pulitzer or a Webby or at least a case of beer for his work covering FIFA, reports that FIFA are seriously going after Jack Warner this time.

That, kids, is what you call “a start.”
