Blatter! Blatter!! Blatter!!! Making how many times now that we’ve called you? How can one old man get into so much trouble like this? We’ve never seen this kind of thing before o.
According to the BBC, members of FIFA’s ethics committee have recommended the 90-day sanction against the 79 year old Swiss Fifa boss after the Swiss attorney general opened criminal proceedings against Blatter.
Blatter is accused of signing a contract “unfavourable” to football’s governing body and making a “disloyal payment” to UEFA president Michel Platini.
Blatter, who has run Fifa since 1998, and Platini, who wants to succeed him, deny any wrongdoing.
The ethics committee had been meeting in Zurich since Monday and have yet to make a decision on Platini, 60.
The investigation is centred on allegations believed to be around a 2005 TV rights deal between Fifa and Jack Warner, the former president of Concacaf, the governing body of football in North and Central America and the Caribbean.
It is also examining a payment of two million Swiss francs (£1.35m) that Platini received in 2011 for working for Blatter. He claims it was “valid compensation” for work carried out more than nine years previously.
Well, the money involved is a lot, but…he could have just asked Diezani nicely, she might have been able to help out.
Blatter, if you manage to get out of this one, can you please try and behave yourself? Thank you.
