FIFA President Sepp Blatter, who said in 2011 he’d steer soccer’s ruling body through troubled waters, isn’t anywhere near land.
Upsets and attacking play have made the opening stages of soccer’s 2014 World Cup the best ever, FIFA President Sepp Blatter said.
Soccer ruling body FIFA needs a “breath of fresh air” after Sepp Blatter’s 16-year leadership, Michel Platini, president of European authority UEFA said, according to the transcript of an interview with L’Equipe and Agence France-Presse.
"The World Cup has taken such a dimension that the organization is hard work for the organizing country and also for FIFA."
