FIFA president Blatter says no to replays
Sepp Blatter remains adamant that soccer will not use replays to
review decisions as long as he is FIFA president.
Blatter said on Thursday that world soccer’s governing body will
“not use monitors to stop the game” and that bad refereeing
decisions must be accepted because “there are always errors in
Blatter’s time as FIFA chief could continue for some time, as he
confirmed again that he would stand for re-election in 2011 if
asked by FIFA’s Congress.
The FIFA president was in the United Arab Emirates to attend the
Club World Cup, which culiminates in Saturday’s final between
European champion Barcelona and South American champion
Estudiantes. He deemed the event a success that provides a
spotlight for worldwide club soccer.
