I have known Mr. Sepp Blatter for more than 20 years. He is a smart man. He has built up FIFA into the richest and most powerful sports organization in the world.
However, to our great disappointment, FIFA has become one of the most distrusted organization in the world. I am afraid corruption in FIFA is systemic and deep-rooted. The history of corruption in FIFA coincides with Sepp Blatter’s tenure as the head of that organization.
It is clear that Mr. Blatter cannot reform FIFA. The only way to save football is for Mr. Blatter to step down. For the sake of the game we love so much, I urge Mr. Blatter to resign as soon as possible, irrespective of the election results.
