FIFA claims it is the victim of corrupt individuals, despite widespread criticism that bribe-taking was embedded in its culture in the presidencies of Joao Havelange and Sepp Blatter.FIFA wants compensation from those accused for the damage illegal actions caused to FIFA'sbrand, reputation and business relationships.

"The convicted defendants abused the positions of trust they held at FIFA and otherinternational football organizations and caused serious and lasting damage to FIFA," FIFAPresident Gianni Infantino said Wednesday in a statement. "The monies they pocketedbelonged to global football and were meant for the development and promotion of the game.FIFA as the world governing body of football wants that money back and we are determined toget it no matter how long it takes."
