Sepp Blatter, who is currently serving a ninety day suspension while investigated for illegal activity recently put Michel Platini as the root cause for his upheaval and the turmoil FIFA finds itself in during an interview with TASS,
Q: But why is your figure at the center of this attack? Is this about money, influence or politics?
Blatter: Because at the beginning it was only a personal attack. It was Platini against me.
Q: So Platini does not like you and that is why he started it.
Blatter: Yeah, he started it, but then it became politics….
Q: Why does Platini dislike you? You probably had a more or less reasonable relationship with each other some years ago. And then suddenly what went wrong?
Blatter: You will have to ask him and we will know. Because he wanted to be FIFA president. But he had not the courage to go as the president. And now we are in such a situation in football.
Platini himself is under investigation, and it’s clear the suspended FIFA president isn’t interested in helping him.
