After all of the alligations flying around FIFA about corruption and bribery today Sepp Blatter stood in front of FIFA and rather than face these claims and talk about them like he should have done he came out and said this:
“We shall wonder if one day our game is played on another planet? Why not? Then we will have not only a World Cup we will have inter-planetary competitions. Why not?”
Seriously he is talking about playing football against other planets. This after earlier in the week he accused the British media of ‘racism’ regarding the whole Qatar situation. How he can think it’s easier I have no idea, how he cant see the corruption within his organization I have no idea.
He is deep into his fourth term of office and when he started he said this would be his last, a statement he has since gone back on and it looks like he will stand again for a fifth term and for the good of football I hope he doesn’t. This week UEFA members began to show how much they don’t like Mr Blatter by Greg Dyke walking out and the head of the Dutch FA questioning Mr Blatters methods.
Today is just another page of the farcical story that FIFA have begun and I hope for the sake of football this story is drawing to a close.
