FIFA president Sepp Blatter has endured a wide load of criticism for the recent scandal surrounding the organization, due to corruption scandals in the U.S. and Switzerland.
The U.S. Justice Department has been discovered to have reportedly taken over $100 million in bribes in return for commercial deals.
The Switzerland government has been in hot water as well due to charges relating to the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
Due to this serious situation, UEFA president Michel Platini is asking the FIFA president to step down from his position.
“I have had enough — enough is enough, too much is too much. I am the first to be disgusted. I told Mr. Blatter ‘we started together and I am now asking you to step down as we cannot continue this way,” Platini said to ESPN FC.
However, the 79-year-old FIFA president is refusing to go away and will run in the presidential election on Friday.
Blatter is set to run against Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, and he denies being responsible for these brewing scandals.
Despite Platini’s recommendation, he pointed out that Blatter still likely has a big enough following to get re-elected, which is why he has refused to resign.
