Banned FIFA Chief Jack Warner Celebrates USA W/Cup Failure
Is the United States of America making more enemies than friends?
They failed to reach the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday.
This development, that caused sadness for the Americans, has brought joy to the heart of banned FIFA Vice President Jack Warner.
He even wanted to throw a party.
He was charged with wire fraud, racketeering and money laundering in a major US scandal that led to changes at FIFA and he has been banned since September 2016.
Warner believes the US has been paid in their own coin for ousting him as president of North American regional football group CONCACAF, and VP of FIFA.
"I wanted to party. I have not been in better spirits. This is the happiest day of my life." Warner said in a Trinidad radio interview, according to a story on the Trinidad Express newspaper website.
He claimed the Americans reduced football in CONCACAF to a nightmare.
“They have used their government to help to dismember FIFA in a way that is unimaginable. And last night on the field of play Trinidad and Tobago reduced them to their knees."
"For me personally, it has reduced the US to a laughingstock. As far as I am concerned this is the beginning of the end for US football. Nobody in CONCACAF likes the US."
According to him, last September 27 when the judge ruled against Jack Warner there was a party in the US, they were quite happy.
"Knowing that this has happened I wanted to go out and party as they partied last September when a judge ruled against me. I wanted to party. This was my personal feeling."
The US finished fifth in Concacaf World Cup qualifying and will miss out on the World Cup finals for the first time since 1986.
