Dyke attacks FIFA president Blatter

Wednesday 11 June 2014

Current FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been told that he should stand down instead of standing for re-election in 2015 after the world’s governing football body suffered yet another corruption scandal following the voting process of Qatar 2022, BBC Sport has reported.



The head of the Dutch Football Association, Michael Van Praag, has told Blatter he should not stand when the election comes around in 2015, while head of the FA Greg Dyke has said Blatter’s response to the corruption allegations is worrying.


After it was alleged that disgraced football official Mohammed Bin Hammam made illegal payments to other officials in return for their support for Qatar’s bid to hold the World Cup in 2022, which they subsequently won. Dyke described Blatter’s responses to the claims as ‘deeply troubling’.


Blatter had previously said that the allegations facing Qatar and FIA were in fact motivated by racism – prompting the responses to name just two.


Dyke said: “These allegations need to be properly investigated and properly answered. Mr Blatter, many of us are deeply troubled by your reaction to these allegations.


“The allegations being made are nothing to do with racism. They are allegations about corruption.”


FIFA has been plagued with corruption accusations for a number of years now under Blatter’s leadership and are struggling to deal with the latest allegations.


Sponsors Adidas, Visa, Sony, Coca Cola and Hyundai/Kia have all expressed deep concerns over the matter and all subsequently issued statements over the matter – airline Emirates are the only company to decline to comment on the matter.
