Sepp Blatter resigns: 'Blatt's all folks'; 'A new era opens up' for FIFA

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has resigned, and sparked a race for the next election to be held in the coming months. Here is what the world's media had to say.



The Sun: GOT HIM.

The Guardian: Downfall: Blatter walks away

"Polish Benitez" Maciej Skorza working wonders at Lech Poznan

Maciej Skorza has Lech Poznan poised to claim the 2014-15 Polish Ekstraklasa.
Maciej Skorza has Lech Poznan poised to claim the 2014-15 Polish Ekstraklasa.

Here is a nice trivia question for you. Who was the first coach to have beaten Pep Guardiola at the start of his career at Barcelona in the summer of 2008? It might be tempting to name the wily Croat Sergio Kresic, who masterminded the famous Numancia win over Barca at the start of the season in Spain, but the right answer lies elsewhere. Maciej Skorza is the man -- his Wisla Krakow drew the Catalans in the third qualifying round of the Champions League, were thrashed 4-0 at Camp Nou, but proceeded...

FIFA change begins with Blatter resignation, but future is uncertain

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti and Craig Burley react to Sepp Blatter's resignation in Berlin ahead of the Champions League Final.

The rumors spread like lighter fluid on a barbecue from the moment it was announced, just before 4 p.m. local time: FIFA news conference at 6 at the self-described "home of football."

Such hastily called news conferences usually mean only one thing: Something big is going down. And common sense pointed to the fact that whatever was happening would involve Jerome Valcke, FIFA's general secretary.

Earlier in the day, documents emerged that he had authorized three bank transfers from FIFA accounts...

Sepp Blatter resigns, so who will become next FIFA president?

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop believes UEFA president Michel Platini is the favorite to become the next president of FIFA.
ABC News reported that Sepp Blatter is currently under investigation by the FBI.

Within minutes of FIFA president Sepp Blatter resigning Tuesday as the leader of football's ruling body, the race to succeed him had started.

According to FIFA rules, all potential candidates must have played an active role in football for at least two years and have the backing of at least five member associations. Blatter acknowledged Tuesday that FIFA needs an "overhaul," and here we take a look at just who might be the person to do it.

Odds according to William Hill. For more information on...

De Gea, Courtois, Lloris and Hart -- assessing the #PremRank goalkeepers

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner, Steve Nicol and Alejandro Moreno discuss the four goalkeepers that are included in the Premier League top 50 in #PremRank, citing David De Gea is the most commanding of the goalkeepers.

Four goalkeepers have made #PremRank, ESPN FC's countdown of the top 50 players in the Premier League. Shaka Hislop runs the rule over David De Gea, Thibaut Courtois, Hugo Lloris and Joe Hart.

David De Gea

He is different from someone such as Thibaut Courtois because De Gea doesn't seem to be very vocal, but he exudes a quiet confidence that others respond to. The Manchester United of today don't have as many dominant characters as they did five or 10 years ago, but I think De Gea has become one...

Buffon and Ter Stegen are the rocks at the heart of Juventus and Barcelona

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno reckons Barcelona will have too much for Juventus in the Champions League final.

As Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen clasp hands in Berlin on Sunday for the traditional show of solidarity before a big game, the wonder is whether they will talk about the one piece of common ground between them, beyond the fact they're gracing a stage like the Champions League final.

They're not just at opposite ends of the pitch; they're at opposite ends of their careers, with totally opposing circumstances. It's difficult to think of a contrast between...
