Big two reject new Polish FA board

Fifa and Uefa do not recognise the newly-appointed administrator for the troubled Polish football federation.

ZURICH // Football's world and European governing bodies, Fifa and Uefa, will not recognise the newly-appointed administrator for the troubled Polish football federation. The two bodies say the suspension of the Polish Football Association board was not legitimate. The suspension was ordered yesterday by a court-appointed chief for allegedly failing to tackle corruption in the domestic league. Fifa and Uefa issued a joint statement today saying they continue to recognise the federation's current leadership as the only legitimate authority to run football in Poland.
