Blatter and Platini Banned

Football

ByTheMinEurope

Merry Christmas folks! Here's an early present for you all too...Blatter and Platini banned from all football activity for EIGHT years!

Blatter has arrived at the old FIFA headquarters in Zurich. News conference coming soon. Could be explosive!

The ban is for all footballing activity...neither men can attend a game, pick a fantasy team or doing keepy uppies in the garden. Honest.

This is the full statement from FIFA...damning to say the least.

One of the big questions people are asking is whether Qatar will now host the 2022 World Cup...they shouldn't. But likely will.

Look at the state of him...this from Getty Images in Zurich...#MassivePlaster

No surprise...Blatter to go to court of arbitration for sport and appeal his ban. He will never admit he's in the wrong. Ever.

Just read a tweet from someone saying Blatter, Platini and LvG out on the same day would be the "best day of his life". Very sheltered life.

Blatter press conference due at around 10am. I bet he'll get very angry at any questions asked. Like an aggressive drunk on Boxing Day.

Wonder if Lee Nelson will make an appearance at the presser...
