US investigators have accused officials from football's governing body Fifa of racketeering, fraud and money laundering involving millions of dollars.

Some 14 people have been indicted, with seven held in Zurich. Fifa president Sepp Blatter, who is not among those arrested, vowed to kick out corrupt officials.

But FAI boss John Delaney says a change of leadership is required after Blatter's 17-year reign. "He is clearly blind to the damage that his continued grip is doing to world football," he writes in today's Irish Independent.
