Ex President Sepp Blatter Blasts Current FIFA Head Gianni Infantino For Showing Him ‘Lack Of Respect’

Ex-Fifa president Sepp Blatter has accused successor Gianni Infantino of disrespecting him and says the new head of world football does not answer his phone calls.

The 80-year-old says he has met with Infantino to discuss “questions that should be solved” at Fifa.

“[Infantino] said ‘I will work on that’ and he never came back,” said Blatter.

Blatter’s six-year ban from football was upheld this week after an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

In a wide-ranging interview with the BBC’s World Football programme, Blatter also said:

  

“I am definitely not a happy man [with] what happened with Fifa,” Blatter added.

    “I have never seen in any company that the new president… was not playing respect to the old president.

    “After his election we had a very good contact and he stopped at my house and we had a chat. I told him I have a list of questions that should be solved in Fifa which has not been solved before.

    “I have asked him, I have sent him a letter and I have his personal number and I was told that it’s still correct. Never never an answer – never.

    “I still have this list, so now we speak only with lawyers.”
