John Delaney Gives His Reaction To Blatter Resignation

The man who we will rashly dub the pretender to the throne has given his reaction to Sepp Blatter's resignation.

The big man Denis O'Brien has already given his view on this and we can print that.

John Delaney could run UEFA. He could run FIFA as far as I'm concerned... certainly better than Sepp Blatter. And more honestly.


The FAI voted against Blatter last Friday and Delaney has previously called for him to step down.

He welcomed the decision.

It’s a good day for world football but it’s now important that when debate moves on - and it is important that the debate moves on - that we use this opportunity to change the culture of FIFA.

The culture at FIFA was one of corruption, one of bribery. It had nothing to do with the beautiful game and as I described it last week, was more out of a mafia movie than football.

Delaney cited an intriguing precedent for FIFA as it attempts to renew itself.

If you go back to the IOC, the international Olympic movement, they faced these issues many years ago and they changed that culture very quickly with a strong president who brought in good governance procedures.
