Outgoing FIFA President, Sepp Blatter, has revealed that he is receiving support from his ex-girlfriends in his fight to clear his name from accusations of corruption.
The 79-year-old has been banned from all footballing activity for eight years for alleged corruption, although he has lodged an appeal with FIFA in a bid to overturn the decision.
“I am sure that there is justice in this world, and that I have committed nothing which goes to criminal law,” Blatter told The Times.
“I have killed nobody, I have not robbed a bank, I have not taken any money from anywhere and I was even treating well all my ex-girlfriends. It’s true. They defend me. One I was married to only for a few months and she is really defending me.”
Blatter’s successor will be elected in a FIFA meeting next Friday.
