Ricardo Teixeira, the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, is in the midst of another scandal.
Local newspapers report that the president was somehow involved with a company who overcharged both the organizers of a 2008 friendly between Brazil and Portugal.
"Folha said the Ailanto Marketing firm charged almost twice the normal room rate in booking accommodation for the Brazil side and 40 members of the Portuguese delegation. The local government of Brasilia spent 9 million reais ($5.23 million) on the game, according to Folha.
It said Ailanto is the owner of another company called VSV Agropecuaria Empreendimentos Ltda whose Rio de Janeiro business address is the same as that of a firm belonging to Teixeira"
Folha did not specify how Teixeira might have benefited from the overcharging."
The last sentence stating that there is no specific evidence of Teixeira benefiting from the situation does give a moment for pause.
Further on however, it is revealed that he is no stranger to such corruption scandals as he also been accused of his role in the recent FIFA ISL scandal which been going on for some time.
