Enfin ! Sepp Blatter to Step Down as FIFA President
Sepp Blatter said Tuesday that he would resign from the presidency of FIFA in the wake of a corruption inquiry.
He said he would ask #FIFA to schedule a new election for his replacement as soon as possible.
At a brief, hastily called news conference in Zurich, Blatter said that “FIFA needs a profound restructuring.”
“I appreciate and love FIFA more than anything else,” he said. “And I only want to do the best for FIFA.”
Blatter, 79, has worked for FIFA since 1975. He has been president since 1998.
