Blatter to step down as FIFA President

Blatter to step down as FIFA President

Sepp Blatter has announced he will step down as FIFA President, with a successor to be appointed at an Extraordinary Congress which will be held "as rapidly as possible".

 

The next FIFA Congress is due to be staged next May, but Blatter, making his shock announcement at a hastily-arranged press conference at FIFA headquarters in Zurich, which comes just days after he was re-elected for a fifth term, says they will look to hold an Extraordinary Congress long before that.

 

Based on FIFA statutes, four months notice is required for any Presidential Election to be held, with FIFA chairman of Audit and Compliance Committee Domenico Scala suggesting that it will take place within the period of December 2015 to March 2016.

 

The news is sure to send shockwaves throughout football and comes amid the biggest crisis within world football's governing body in its history.

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
