Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore believes it is "very hard to have huge regard for FIFA" after the organisation's difficulties over the past year.

A controversial bidding process for the right to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups was beset by allegations of corruption, leading to a long period of soul-searching for president Sepp Blatter.

Scudamore told talkSPORT: "FIFA have had their difficulties, it's very hard to have huge regard for the institution the way it's performed in the last couple of years."
