FIFA Provisionally Suspends Sepp Blatter For 90 Days

World football governing body, Fifa, has suspended its president, Mr Sepp Blatter, provisionally for 90 days.

 Members of Fifa’s ethics committee met this week after the Swiss attorney general opened criminal proceedings against Blatter last month.

He is accused of signing a contract “unfavourable” to football’s governing body and making a “disloyal payment” to Uefa president Michel Platini.

Blatter, who has run Fifa since 1998, and Platini, who wants to succeed him, deny any wrongdoing.

A final decision is likely to be made on Friday by Hans Joachim Eckhert, the head of Fifa’s ethics adjudicatory chamber.
