ELMAU,Germany: President Barack Obama says soccer fans around the world want to ensure FIFA operates with integrity.

Obama weighed in on the FIFA corruption scandal during a visit to Germany. He says in conversations with people in Europe, he's heard concerns about the importance of FIFA operating with transparency and accountability.

Obama says he can't comment on the ongoing investigation by the U.S. Justice Department. He says soccer is not only a game but a massive business. He says it's also a source of incredible national pride.

Obama says the U.S. - not traditionally a soccer powerhouse - has been getting better and better at each World Cup. He says Americans want to make sure that a sport gaining popularity in the U.S. is conducted in an upright manner.
