German federation calls on former head Theo Zwanziger to step down from FIFA executive
BERLIN - The German football federation is calling on Theo Zwanziger to step down from FIFA's executive committee following a dispute with his successor as head of the federation.
Zwanziger stepped down as president of the German federation, or DFB, in 2012. He was succeeded by Wolfgang Niersbach but has remained a member of the FIFA executive committee.
Zwanziger has accused Niersbach of "hypocrisy" over his pay. In a statement following a meeting Saturday in Salvador, Brazil, the DFB's leadership said it "rejected the clearly personally motivated and completely untenable statements in the strongest terms."
It said it has concluded that Zwanziger "does not appropriately represent the interests of German football at FIFA" and is calling for him to step down from the world governing body.
