During his time as FIFA president his choice of words have been far from impressive and his latest statement does nothing but adds to his list of ridiculous comments. Recently racism has taken center stage in football with Luis Suarez and John Terry both being accused of racial abuse.
Both situations have been dragging along for a few weeks and Mr. Blatter made matters worse. In a recent interview he was asked if there is any racism on the pitch, he responded by saying:
“I would deny it. There is no racism, there is maybe one of the players towards another, he has a word or a gesture which is not the correct one.
A very poor answer by someone who is the face of the world football governing body, he wasn’t finished making himself a bigger fool than he already is and had this to say:
“But also the one who is affected by that, he should say that this is a game. We are in a game, and at the end of the game we shake hands, and this can happen because we have worked so hard against racism and discrimination.
In his statement he’s implying that it is ok to racially abuse a player but at the end of the match shake his hands. He claims FIFA has worked hard against racism but correct me if i’m wrong for saying that he himself is encouraging it.
