FIFA president Sepp Blatter hits out at critics who, according to him, are out to destroy football’s international governing body.
Must Maintain Unity
Blatter said to Asian football officials, “I don’t know what the reasoning is behind this but we must maintain unity.” “It is the best way to say to all the destructors in the world, they want to destroy not the game, but they want to destroy the institution,” he continued.
Allegations of corruption has erupted and gone out of control when leaked documents and email conversations implicated that former Qatari official Mohamed bin Hammam gave cash gifts to several FIFA officials.
Still Has Fire
Blatter, who has served FIFA since 1998, then turned the criticism into an appeal to remain in office. “We are in the situation where we need leadership. I still have fire inside me.” Next year, FIFA official will vote on the next president. Blatter is said to be keen on the holding the position.
