Cologne, Germany (dpa) – Germans believe that corruption is wide-spread within the ruling football body FIFA and don’t expect this to change under its new president Gianni Infantino, according to a survey published on Tuesday.

The YouGov insitute said that 57 per cent of 1,361 people questioned believe that the level of corruption will not drop under Infantino, who was elected successor of Joseph Blatter on Friday.

Eighteen per cent think that corrupt behaviour will become less with the new leadership, and a reform programme which was also approved at the extraordinary FIFA congress.

Overall, 85 per cent of those polled say that there has likely been corruption within FIFA, and 87 per cent that corruption and wrongdoing is wide-spread within the governing body. Only 11 per cent think that just a few people at the top of FIFA are involved in corrupt practices.
