Jeffrey Webb told a US Federal court in November he knowingly abused his position for personal gain and regrets his decision.
Webb pleaded guilty last year to several counts of fraud as part of the global corruption probe in football.
On Monday 18 April, a heavily redacted transcript of his plea hearing was unsealed along with two others in the case.
Webb said the following, per the transcript:
“While I held the position of CIFA president, and then CONCACAF president, I abused my position to personally enrich myself, through various means.
“In or about 2012, a co-conspirator told me that sports marketing companies would offer us side payments in exchange for awarding them commercial rights to World Cup qualifying (sic) matches for the CFU nations. At the time I understood this to be a bribe offer, and I believed that such offers were common in this business.
“I also abused my position of trust, and otherwise including among others, by embezzling funds intended for the benefit of football organisations that I represented and by soliciting and accepting bribes.
“I understood at the time that it was unlawful to accept bribes and embezzle funds in connection with my duties as a high level official of FIFA, CONCACAF or CFU. I deeply regret my participation in this illegal conduct.”
Webb’s sentencing date is scheudled for 3 June.
