Blatter pledges to restore lost integrity
MARCA, Thursday 28th May 2015
“There can be no place for corruption of any kind,” Sepp Blatter said in his welcoming speech to open the 65th FIFA Congress in Zurich ahead of the presidential elections on Friday. “Actions of individuals demand change. We cannot allow the reputation of FIFA to be dragged through the mud any longer”, he explained. Blatter admitted being “ultimately responsible” and that it fell on him “to find a way forward to fix things”. But he denied being responsible for the actions of a minority.
