FIFA’s Sepp Blatter Has Another Bad Day
The photo above pretty much sums up the last few months for FIFA and their controversial leader, Sepp Blatter.
Allegations of all sorts of wrongdoing by soccer's governing body, FIFA, have swirled for months, punctuated by several indictments. Now, we can add a fine moment of embarrassment for outgoing FIFA head Sepp Blatter.
Blatter was about to address a conference after the date for his departure from FIFA had been announced, but before he could begin, a man approached the table Blatter planned to speak from.
From The Daily Mail:
Englishman Simon Brodkin - whose comedy creations include footballer Jason Bent and Lee Nelson - calmly walked up to Blatter's position behind a table at the front of the stage and placed a wad of pretend US dollars on the table, saying: ‘This is for North Korea 2026’.
He then turned to address the press while Blatter, who later announced he would not stand for another term as FIFA president in the new elections having resigned earlier this year, waved urgently at security guards to take him away.
They duly arrived either side of Brodkin, but before they could remove him he threw a huge bundle of notes into the air, which rained down around the out-going president of football's governing body.
Poor Sepp. Can't catch a break:
