Mohamed Bin Hammam has accused Sepp Blatter of being aware of all the skullduggery and of having done nothing.
A statement from the Bin Hammam's office read: "The accusations also contain statements according to which Mr. Blatter, the incumbent FIFA president, was informed of, but did not oppose, payments allegedly made to members of the Caribbean Football Union. Mr. Bin Hammam has therefore requested that the investigation by the Ethics Committee be extended to include Mr. Blatter himself. The timing of the accusations so close to the election of FIFA president on June 1, 2011 suggests that they are part of a plan to damage Mr. Bin Hammam and force him to withdraw as a candidate for the FIFA presidency."
Blatter said that he was "shocked, saddened and deeply unhappy"
Not a very convincing Blatter
Not very pompous Blatter
Quite deflated in fact.
A flatter Blatter.
With both the main candidates under scrutiny what's going to happen to the presidential elections is now a matter of some debate.
