“We are pleased to inform you that you have been appointed member of the Players’ Status Committee. We wish you our sincere congratulations on this appointment,” Samoura stated in the letter.

“We wish you great success and enjoyment in this role at FIFA and look forward to welcoming you soon to Zurich,” she added.

John-Williams gave a brief reaction, saying, “I am pleased, honoured and humbled by this appointment and the opportunity given to me. I remain devoted to serving the game and I will continue to do this to the best of my ability.”

The Players Status Committee is a good fit for DJW. It focuses on an area in which he has demonstrated experience. Makes sense.

The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

A committee appointment was inevitable.

This man couldn't organise a stag party in a brothel. Do they even bother with a pretence of hiring on merit? They lack the shame to even attempt it these days I guess.

He can organize and run a proper national program but he's corrupt and sold out, so he won't be doing that, that's not his agenda

He deliberately put in clauses to sabotage negotiations .... his goal was to sabotage our gold cup, Caribbean cup and wc cup campaigns
