Blatter: Infantino is trying to tear me down

Sun 26 June 2022 | 21:31

Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter says Gianni Infantino is trying to destroy his reputation.

Blatter

who alongside former UEFA boss Michel Platini is currently standing trial on charges of fraud, embezzlement, and corruption, insists that his conscience is clear over his activities during his time as FIFA president.

“I want to clear my honor. When I arrived, we were nothing. And when I left, we were an international organization, solid economically, socially, culturally, even politically,"

Blatter explained to RTS.

"I don’t know why, but Infantino doesn’t want me. He even tries to artificially create a case against me.

“He wants to tear me down, but also everything I’ve done because he thinks he’s doing better.

“I must say that I am very touched. I have been accused of criminal instincts, I have been accused of being a thief. It is absurd. I do not know why I find myself in court and I am sure that thousands, not to say millions of footballers don’t understand it either.”

Platini

also says he wants to fight until the end to clear his name.

“I am shielded against injustice. When we played football matches, which we have lost because of a decision by the referee, we are a little shielded,"

former UEFA president claimed to RTS.

"But injustice hurts your loved ones, your family, your children, your grandchildren much more because they are not prepared to undergo this.

“I will fight, I’m in the fight, and that’s something I’ve always enjoyed. I don’t give up, I won’t give up and I’ll go all the way.”
