Acting FIFA president Issa Hayatou arrives in Zurich
Acting FIFA President Issa Hayatou has arrived in Zurich and spent his first day in office since taking over from the suspended Sepp Blatter.
FIFA says Hayatou addressed staff and met with acting secretary general Markus Kattner to discuss administrative matters.
Hayatou says ”it’s certainly an unprecedented situation for FIFA,” but that ”we remain focused on the necessary reform process, the presidential election and on supporting the current investigations.”
Blatter was suspended for 90 days last week after becoming the subject of a Swiss criminal investigation into financial mismanagement.
