New Delhi, May 16: World football body Fifa has turned to Justice (Retd.) Mukul Mudgal, appointing him as deputy chairman of its governance committee.
"I have seen it on the website though I am yet to receive an official confirmation from them. I feel honoured as it is a big thing for Indian judiciary," Mudgal told PTI.
Mudgal, who is also involved in overseeing the conduct of international cricket matches and IPL games at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, hinted that he would take up the offer.
His engagement with the Delhi and District Cricket Association gets over after the second IPL qualifier scheduled on May 27.
Recently, he was also roped in by the Asian Football Federation in a similar capacity and has already had one meeting with AFC, with the second one scheduled in June.
Luis Miguel Maduro, a former European Court of Justice Advocate General, will head the FIFA governance committee. Mudgal and Maduro will also head Fifa's International Review Committee, which will assess all major decisions.
