Sepp Blatter criticises FA, claims he doesn’t hold grudges
Sepp Blatter has many strong attributes that OTP has long admired. But surely his finest trait is audacity.
Just hours after securing his ‘re-election’/coronation as FIFA President, when he ought to be getting his head down and concentrating on getting his organisation clean, Blatter has taken the opportunity to hit out at the FA for their attempts to have the election postponed.
He said: “There’s no bad feeling with the associations that didn’t vote for me.
“I’m the president of all the associations and will work with all of them – and with 186 votes I’m proud. Don’t worry about the English.
“The number one national association in Fifa – the FA founded the game in 1863 – have the right to be called the FA, Football Association. They should be an example, so that was a surprise.
“I had heard about it, and Uefa made a special meeting trying to convince them. I thought this problem would be solved so was surprised when they tried to change the agenda of the Congress and not make elections.”
OTP might start operating in a permanent indignant state and see what we can get away with.
