Paris Saint-Germain president and beIN Media chief Nasser al-Khelaifi insisted on Wednesday that “I have nothing to hide” as he faced a marathon grilling by Swiss prosecutors investigating claims of World Cup corruption.
“I asked to come to Switzerland to give my explanations. I am at the disposal of the prosecutor general if he wants to see me again,” said the Qatari after his day-long appearance with Swiss justice officials. “I am calm and I am leaving calmly.”
Khelaifi, a Qatari with close ties to the Gulf state’s royal family, is under investigation for allegedly striking illegal deals with disgraced former FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke, who had been Sepp Blatter’s right-hand man.
