FIFA presidential hopeful Tokyo Sexwale Tuesday said he had appeared before a U.S. grand jury last week as a potential witness in the probe into the 2010 World Cup corruption scandal. U.S. authorities are investigating claims that former CONCACAF president Jack Warner was paid a $10 million bribe to help South Africa win the bid to host the 2010 World Cup, among other charges.Explosive accusations of corrupt wheeling and dealing at FIFA have led to U.S. charges against 14 top football officials and sports executives, including President Sepp Blatter, who was banned for eight years Monday, along with UEFA president Michel Platini.
