Outrageous, that is the term FIFA president, Sepp Blatter has used for the current furore over a criminal investigation into his activities.
Blatter who announced in June that he’ll step down following the arrest of 14 officials on fraud, racketeering and Money laundering, has announced he won’t leave until he finds his successor.
Swiss authorities are conducting a criminal investigation into the operations of Blatter, for criminal mismanagement and misappropriation, but Blatter feels he is being publicly condemned.
“This is just an investigation, not an indictment,” he told German magazine Bunte.
“The situation is not pleasant. I am being condemned without there being any evidence for wrongdoing on my part. That is really outrageous.
“I’m fine. I am the Fifa president and still working fine.
“I assure you that I will stop on February 26, 2016. Then I will finish, but not a day earlier. Until then, we will have a really good candidate found, who will be a great new president.
“I will fight until February 26 – for me, for Fifa.
“I am convinced that evil come to light and good will prevail.”
