New Head of Brazilian Soccer Is Corrupt, Romario Says

RIO DE JANEIRO – The man named to head Brazil’s football confederation (CBF) is corrupt, according to Sen. Romario de Souza Faria, a member of the Brazilian squad that won the 1994 World Cup.

Marco Polo Del Nero, 74, led the Sao Paulo state federation from 2003 until his appointment on Thursday as president of the CBF.

Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper reported this week on a real estate transaction involving Del Nero and Wagner Abrahão, owner of a company that handles travel arrangements for the Brazilian national team and for clubs in the second and third divisions.

“These guys are corrupt,” Romario said Friday, referring to Del Nero and Abrahão. “I hope the Attorney General’s Office and the treasury carry out an investigation in the CBF.”

In February, Folha said, Abrahão sold Del Nero a luxury condominium in Rio de Janeiro that was valued at 5.2 million reais ($1.73 million).

Del Nero paid for the condo with a combination of cash and another unit in the same building that he had bought nine months earlier for 1.6 million reais ($533,000).
