WHY DOES DICTATOR BLATTER THINK HE IS GOOD FOR THE GAME? IT IS TIME TO BOOT HIM OUT

Crisis? What crisis? asks Sepp Blatter

Crisis? What crisis? asks Sepp Blatter

BY JOHN GUBBA

What a staggering show of defiance by FIFA President Sepp Blatter who has shrugged off the crisis surrounding his governing body at a remarkable press conference in Zurich.

And how sad that this FIFA farce should take the spotlight away from the Champions League Final that represented everything good about The Beautiful Game.

Blatter has dismissed all allegations of corruption from all quarters including his own vice President Jack Warner who says “Blatter must be stopped”

Like all dictators Blatter refuses to accept criticism. He insists his organisation is “not in crisis just facing difficulties” and dismisses all allegations of corruption

Despite growing calls for him to resign and corruption allegations over the vote that awarded Qatar the 2022 World Cup, Blatter is determined he will be reappointed FIFA President for another four years on Wednesday (June 1).

It will take a revolution within FIFA to stop Blatter extending his 14 years in power. And sadly that is unlikely to happen despite Warner’s opposition.

Blatter says he is good for the game. But ask anyone outside FIFA and you would struggle to fill a small room who agree with him.

The truth is the FIFA President has brought The Beautiful Game into disrepute. And the time has come for Blatter and his chronies to step aside or for a new governing body to take control of the world game.

Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers

BY JOHN GUBBA

Congratulations to Swansea on becoming the first team from Wales to win a place in the English Premier League. And well done to dignified manager Brendan Rodgers for leading his team to a thrilling 4-2 win over his former club Reading in the Play-Off Final at Wembley. It has been a traumatic year for Rodgers who lost his mother Christina in 2010 and his father Malachy is suffering terminal cancer. It is good to see one of football’s genuine nice guys finally enjoy the sweet taste of success. The former Manchester United youth team player was tipped for the top as a manager by Jose Mourinho back in 2004 when he invited Rodgers to join his backroom staff at Chelsea.
