Blatter thinks ‘idiots’ run English game
Sebastian Coe says FIFA President Sepp Blatter once described English football as being ”run by idiots.”
In his new autobiography, Coe says Blatter ”has always had a problem with the English game.”
According to Coe, Blatter once said to him: ”Your game is run by idiots. It’s not run by bright people.”
England‘s 2018 bid received just two votes, with Russia winning the hosting rights.
Coe says ”my instinct was that Blatter always wanted Russia.”
