FIFA President resigns amid corruption scandal
Sepp Blatter will resign as the FIFA president amid a $150 million corruption scandal and has promised to call for fresh elections to choose a successor.
It was just on Friday when the 79-year-old was re-elected to a fifth term as president, two days after the crisis erupted which saw seven soccer officials arrested in Zurich.
Interpol has added six people connected to the FIFA scandal on it’s worldwide most wanted list.
Two former FIFA officials, including ex-vice president Jack Warner and four corporate executives are being sought on racketeering and corruption charges.
This follows last week’s move by police in the US and Switzerland to charge 14-people in the $150 million scam.
