This is a real relief for Sepp Blatter, even if it is still only a partial legal success.

Sepp Blatter is very confident for the future

Asked by AFP, Sepp Blatter said “Not having personally received the document from the MPC”. MPC suspected Blatter of signing “Unfavorable contract with FIFA” with the CFU, then led by the sulphurous Trinidadian Jack Warner, struck off for life by the International Federation and charged with corruption by the American justice. Terminated in 2011, this contract granted the television rights to the 2010 and 2014 World Cups to the CFU for € 536,000, an amount deemed to be below market price.

The former FIFA president, however, remains subject to criminal proceedings in the second part of the case: the controversial payment of € 1.89 million to Michel Platini, then president of UEFA, in February 2011. But the Swiss are confident: “Once the case concerning the payment of this sum to Platini will also be closed, I will ask FIFA for my rehabilitation, because my suspension by the ethics committee was made on the basis of accusations by the Swiss justice. . “
