John Delaney: Met with UEFA financial director

The European football governing body has reportedly dipped into its development fund for several million Euros - providing the FAI with a "solidarity payment" for its main creditors, Danske Bank.

Finance director Josef Koller told the Irish Sunday Times after meeting with FAI chief executive John Delaney: "It is a really difficult situation, because of the economic crisis, and we said 'Okay, we can advance certain solidarity payments.'

"I just said to John Delaney that if you want me to be there and I can assist by explaining it from UEFA's point of view, I will do it.

"Danske felt very comfortable to have somebody from UEFA there, especially the finance director. It was really worthwhile to explain to Danske how important this is for us."
