Triesman resigned as chairman of both the Football Associationand England's 2018 World Cup bid last May after making comments about alleged bribery attempts by Spain and Russia of referees in the 2010 World Cup. But speaking before the culture, media and sport committee on Tuesday, he gave evidence of some incidents during England's ultimately unsuccessful World Cup bid. Triesman said Fifa vice-president Jack Warner asked for money - suggested to be £2.5million - to build an education centre in his native Trinidad before asking for £500,000 to buy Haiti's World Cup TV rights for the earthquake-hit nation, with both payments to be channelled through Warner.
