Blatter calls people to contest FIFA elections, instead of criticizing him
FIFA president Sepp Blatter wants his detractors to contest and take him down rather than just criticize him.
Blatter said that people, who believe that he should not be a candidate or should not get elected, can take the risk to be in an election.
He said that if people never take the risk, they will never have a chance. But if one takes the risk they also have the chance to lose.
However, Blatter's words appeared to be aimed at UEFA president Michel Platini who is seen as a possible rival to Blatter, although the Frenchman has yet to decide whether he will enter the race, News24.com reported.
Blatter also suggested that five-times World Cup winners Brazil needed FIFA development programmes just like other countries, following their debacle at the World Cup where they lost 7-1 to Germany in the semi-finals. (ANI)
