Blatter to skip Wembley final

2011-05-28 15:38

Zurich - FIFA President Sepp Blatter is skipping the Champions League final in London to prepare for his appearance at a bribery scandal hearing on Sunday.

Blatter's adviser Brian Alexander says he will not attend the Barcelona vs Manchester United match at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Blatter would traditionally attend UEFA's showpiece club match, where he could have met leaders of 53 European football federations who have votes in the FIFA presidential election scheduled for Wednesday.

Blatter and his only rival Mohamed bin Hammam have been summmoned before FIFA's ethics committee on Sunday morning in Zurich.

Bin Hammam is accused of bribing Caribbean voters, and Blatter is alleged to have ignored corruption attempts.

    The thing is if England won the bid and they knew of any corruption I'm sure England would of kept quiet. These football associations are all unethical.
