Sepp Blatter Appeals 90 Day suspension

Sepp Blatter has been given a 90 day ban, with allegations of suspicion of "disloyal payment" of 2m Swiss francs (£1.3m) to Mr Platini, which was "allegedly made for work performed between January 1999 and June 2002". The FIFA President is currently appealing the suspension ruling.

Klaus Stohlker, Blatter's friend and adviser has stated that "He has appealed already to Fifa's appeal committee. He is defending his position and he is sure that he will be found not guilty." Blatter's lawyers also confirmed they were seeking to overturn his ban.

Blatter, who has run Fifa since 1998, and Platini, who wants to succeed him, deny any unlawful business operations. A final decision about the case against Mr Blatter was made today by Hans Joachim Eckhert, the head of Fifa's ethics adjudicatory chamber, after giving Blatter the suspension on Thursday 8th October.

The ethics committee met this week after the Swiss attorney general opened criminal proceedings against Mr Blatter over a £1.3m payment to UEFA President Michel Platini.
