President of Chile’s soccer association travels to US for six month break, amid corruption investigation

The president of Chile’s soccer association Sergio Jadue is traveling to the United States for a six month break.

Jadue arrived at Santiago’s airport on Tuesday evening, surrounded by local press.

The president is currently in the midst of a corruption investigation and is traveling less than a week after taking a 30-day medical leave.

Jadue refused to comment as to whether he will be helping U.S. authorities who are investigating corruption in world soccer. The president also undertook a mysterious trip to São Paulo during the past week over FIFA corruption allegations, La Terra reports.

The head of Colombia’s soccer federation, Luis Bedoya, recently resigned citing personal reasons.
