Blatter probe 'interesting'

2011-05-27 14:15

London - UEFA president Michel Platini has described the decision by FIFA to investigate Sepp Blatter as part of bribery scandal as a "very interesting moment."

Blatter's presidential election rival Mohamed bin Hammam has already been summoned to face a FIFA ethics panel on Sunday on charges of bribing voters, casting into doubt whether Wednesday's poll can go ahead.

After being told of the new developments, Platini said: "We have some strange days, these next days." He said that because of the FIFA elections, "I will go back to Zurich after the final of the Champions League."

Insisting he has never taken a bribe, Platini added: "You know the people who are corrupt, they know who can be corruptible. They know I am incorruptible."

    Ask Khosa and Danny Jordan [ is Blatter is corrupt or if he can easily bribed?]. They know what they did to bring FIFA World cup to Sasa Afika. Hahahahaha!!

      what did they do to bring it here. SA put a great bid which they won and hosted a memorable WC. Don't even try to tarnish that.

      they did nothing unethical, just launched a great bid and were the better option than all the other bidding countries
