FIFA president Sepp Blatter slams investigation and vows to be cleared

Four FIFA sponsors - Coca-Cola, Budweiser, Visa and McDonald's - have called for beleaguered president Sepp Blatter to resign immediately.

Proceedings were opened against the FIFA president last month, and he was questioned on suspicion of criminal mismanagement and misappropriation of FIFA funds.

Chung Mung-Joon vows to sue FIFA's Sepp Blatter for embezzlement

Four FIFA sponsors - Coca-Cola, Budweiser, Visa and McDonald's - have called for beleaguered president Sepp Blatter to resign immediately.
La Liga president Javier Tebas has very strong opinions about FIFA, Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini, and the system that he feels needs to change in world football.

FIFA presidential candidate Chung Mung-Joon has vowed to sue Sepp Blatter in court for embezzlement and said world football's governing body "has become a corrupt organisation serving the interests of a few."

Chung, a former FIFA vice-president, said Blatter was being paid a secret salary that was not even agreed by FIFA's executive committee.

The South Korean told the Sport Leaders convention in London on Wednesday: "FIFA has become a badge of shame. To call it a mafia is almost insulting to mafia,...

Gunners playmaker Ozil, 26, got a goal and an assist as Arsenal crushed United 3-0 in the Premier League on Sunday.

That result and performance contrasted sharply with Arsenal's fortunes in the Champions League so far, where they have slumped to defeat in their opening two group games against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos.
