King of FIFA Sepp Blatter is stepping down

June 5th, 2015 by ,    photos by

Just days after several other FIFA executives are arrested, FIFA's re-elected president calls it quits?


Sepp Blatter is kicking off his cleats. The 79-year-old FIFA president, who had just been re-elected when a number of other FIFA soccer officials were arrested by the FBI on charges related to corruption, has announced the end of his FIFA days. 

But according to The New York Times, it has nothing  to do with the FBI's own investigation into Sepp himself - only that FIFA "needs a profound restructuring," he said at a press conference (you don't say). 

Stirring the dust

The investigation has brought to light concerns within the organization that several top-level players in the boardroom have been involved in conspiracies related to corruption. Put plainly: The FBI suspects Sepp is among a number of executives engaging in illegal practices, while hoping to score the big pot.

Sepp will continue his duties until a successor is found. He or she may have big shoes to fill - and, if the allegations are true, even bigger pockets.
