Former FIFA Vice-President Jeffrey Webb today pleaded not guilty in a United States court to any involvement in the massive corruption scandal that has engulfed the world football governing body.

In his first court appearance in the US, the former CONCACAF President was placed under house arrest as part of the $10 million bail conditions imposed by a New York Federal Judge.

Webb has been ordered to remain at home within a 20-mile radius of the court and his movements will be monitored by an electronic tag.

He has also surrendered his three passports, two of which were issued by the United Kingdom.

The Cayman native is accused of accepting bribes worth millions of dollars in connection with the sale of marketing rights.
