It is a shame..

He has also recently said that there is no room in football for women, as it is a 'macho' sport.. he really is an idiot

Yeah, some day a list of stupid comments he makes should be put together, it would be a tragic comedy. I just don't understand how he is still in charge of FIFA.

The elections for FIFA president is coming in 2015. There are no formal candidates yet. Blatter has said in the past he's done, but it seems like he is changing his mind. Platini may be his opponent.

Football is bigger than any sport, thanks to the International Federation of Football (FIFA).

Platini would not be too much better IMO.

Need a complete clearout, too many senile old men in suits who don't know the game. Get people in who actually care about the game and not the brown envelopes they receive as bribes
