The top brass of the World’s Governing Body of Football are all in South Africa attending the Senior Men’s World Cup, but despite the numerous dignitaries it is T&T’s Jack Warner, who is the most sought after by World Leaders. Yesterday at the Opening Ceremony of the World Cup at the Soccer City Stadium, Warner received high praises from none other than UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. The UN Secretary General thanked the Senior Fifa Vice President for all his efforts in bringing the World Cup to South Africa. “Mr Warner, you are an influential man, this event has untied a nation under one banner, football. There is hope again in South Africa.”

Isn't it amazing that Jack Warner is such a sought after official around the world yet at home he is such a vilified man.
For my friends in the WACK radio Shout-box, if ever you wanted a reason to have Jack Warner in government and also have him retain his position as Vice President of FIFA then... Just take a long hard look at the photo above. Need I say more?
