Top FIFA Sponsors wants Blatter to quit

FIFA sponsor Visa became the third sponsor who took a call for Blatter’s immediate resignation, following beverage company Coca-Cola and fast food chain McDonald’s. It was another blow for the World soccer chief Sepp Blatter as he was demanded by three top FIFA sponsor companies to quit.

It was the first time FIFA‘s powerful financial backers had called explicitly for Blatter to resign.

Blatter who is 79, is under investigation by the Attorney General Office of Switzerland (OAG) over alleged mismanagement and misappropriation one week ago.

Blatter’s New York attorney Richard Cullen issued a statement saying the Swiss would not leave office.

Blatter firmly believes that his leaving office now would not be in the best interest of FIFA nor would it advance the process of reform and therefore, he will not resign.
