Blatter brands England ‘bad losers.’

Well, Sepp Blatter has branded England bad losers, after the nation complained after only receiving two votes. He says FIFA are a fair organisation and aren’t corrupt. How can a fair organisation promise votes to a bid team, only to lie and vote for other bids? How is that a fair organisation. It is not fair to lie to people, and make them waste vast resources on an unsuccessful bid (England are rumoured to have spent over £13million putting together the bid.) If that is the case, this whole process has been a complete waste of time for the whole of England. Many people were excited and hoping to host the 2018 World Cup. Only to have their hopes dashed by the controversial president of FIFA, Blatter.

I for one am not his biggest fan. For a start, as the governing head of football FIFA should be impartial and show no favouritism. Therefore is it really acceptable that Blatter can come out and say things like this? Clearly the power has got to his (fat) head, and know he rules like a dictator. I cannot wait until Blatter’s term ends, as to be quite frank, I am sick of his presidency. I don’t agree with his ideas, and I believe he is taking football backwards. The sooner he is gone the better!

These are the comments Blatter made… make up your own opinion.

“To be honest, I was surprised by all the English complaining after the defeat. England, of all people, the motherland of fairplay ideas,” Blatter told Swiss weekly magazine Weltwoche in an interview released ahead of publication on Thursday.

“Now some of them are showing themselves to be bad losers,” he said. “You can’t come afterwards and say so and so promised to vote for England. The results are known. The outcome came out clearly.”
