Lord Mawhinney: The FA is 'dysfunctional'

The Football Association Council is to elect a new chairman after the resignation of Lord Triesman.

Lord Triesman stood down after the Mail on Sunday published comments that he suggested Spain could drop its 2018 bid if rival bidder Russia helped bribe referees at this summer's World Cup.

Former Football League chair Lord Mawhinney gives his opinion of whether the comments will damage England's 2018 World Cup bid.
