It’s a known fact that Roger Federer is a Football lover. He is often seen cheering and supporting his local team FC Basel. However, these days he is quite disappointed with the scandalous happening with the FIFA.

FIFA has been going through crises ever since 6 of their executives were arrested in Zurich for alleged corrupt practices. This has disappointed many soccer fans, including Federer, who feels that it is deteriorating the image of sport internationally.

The Swiss maestro expressed his disappointment over on-going chatter in his post-match interview at the French Open. Albeit, Federer comfortably sailed through to the fourth round here, the FIFA controversies surrounding FIFA have disturbed him a lot.

According to Sport24, a dejected Federer even stated that he is a ‘football’ fan and not a FIFA fan.

Federer is not the only tennis player to be affected by the viral gossips. Even Rafael Nadal expressed his concern over dishonesty thriving in the board of the world’s most loved sport.
