Disgraced FIFA President Turns Resignation Into Special Election Farce

Sepp Blatter is facing growing calls to step down immediately as Fifa president after prompting outrage by suggesting he could cling on to the job until March.
Following the news that Mr Blatter is being scrutinised by the FBI, senior football officials said it would be a “farce” if the 79-year-old stayed at the helm after Tuesday’s announcement that he is to stand down.
The Jordanian Football Association said it was studying Fifa rules to see if there was any way Prince Ali bin Hussein, who was defeated by Mr Blatter in the Fifa presidential election last week, could take over until a new election is arranged, which could take another 10 months.
