Kenny Awotorebo

Argentine former footballer, Diego Maradona slammed Sepp Blatter, the president of football governing body FIFA, saying, “We are talking about the most beautiful sport and most passionate in the world, and it’s being directed by a freezer, someone who should live in a block of ice,” according to CNN.

Blatter is up for re-election for the FIFA president post and will be running against retired Portuguese footballer Luís Figo and Prince Ali bin Al-Hussein of Jordan, who is backed by Maradona. Speaking about Blatter, Maradona added, “Rats can get anywhere in the world; he is the president of FIFA,” and went on to call FIFA “a mafia.”
