Greg Clarke will not stand down from £190,000 Fifa vice-president role despite FA chairman resignation

Clarke stepped down after making controversial comments on Tuesday

Uefa statutes state: “If a vice-president or person elected to Fifa Council vacates the position during term of office, Uefa shall elect a replacement until the next congress.”

The news was met with an angry response from former Manchester United defender Neville, who is leading calls for complete reform across English football and, in particular, the FA.

“Unacceptable,” said Neville. “A resigned FA chairman stays on as a Fifa Vice President! FA have you got the guts to deal with this mess? Independent Regulator please ASAP!!

“He can resign from his post though and the FA can at least lead on this by asking him to step down publicly if he won’t! He’s embarrassed them enough.”
