FIFA denied Friday reports in German media that president Gianni Infantino was under investigation for a possible ethics violation.Die Welt newspaper reported that Infantino had improperly ordered the destruction of the minutes of a FIFA executive committee meeting held at last month's congress in Mexico city.
