Another Sepp Blatter look alike. Julio Grondona, Argentinian football’s godfather
It appears worse than Dunkirk. The English FA’s vote to delay the election goes over like a lead balloon and is defeated 172-17. And in between they come for some pretty vicious pillorying.
There is a war reference in Leopoldo Galtieri’s ….. err… Julio Grondona’s denouncement. The Argentinian Football Association’s despot brings in Falklands.
” Yes, I voted for Qatar, because a vote for the US would be like a vote for England. And that is not possible. “But with the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left.”
Talk about a bargaining chip on the shoulder. There are some real gems in the rest of Grondona’s speech.
It’s matchpoint, setpoint, and gamepoint for Sepp Blatter. The man is a genius when it comes to being elected.
